            THE LAw GOVERNING LAWYERS 3D





                   CHAPTER 1.   REGULATION OF THE LEGAL PROFESSION

                   TOPIC 2.   PROCESS OF PROFESSIONAL REGULATION

                   TITLE  B. AUTHORIZED AND UNAUTHORIZED PRACTICE

   § 3. Jurisdictional Scope of the Practice of Law by a Lawyer

   Minn.2016. Subsec. (3) quot. in diss. op.; com. (e) cit. and quot. in sup., quot. in diss. op. Director of
   state Office of Lawyers Professional Responsibility issued a private admonition against Colorado-
   licensed attorney for engaging in the unauthorized practice of law by representing his in-laws in
   negotiating a settlement regarding their ability to pay a Minnesota judgment; a panel of the Lawyers
   Professional Responsibility Board affirmed the admonition. This court affirmed, holding that the panel's
   decision that defendant violated the Minnesota Rules of Professional Responsibility even though he was
   not physically present in Minnesota was not clearly erroneous. Citing Restatement Third of the Law
   Governing Lawyers § 3, the court explained that defendant was not permitted to provide legal services
   on a temporary basis under the rule's exception, because the provided services did not arise out of or
   reasonably relate to his Colorado practice; the dissent argued that the services related to his practice's
   collection work. In re Charges of Unprofessional Conduct in Panel File No. 39302, 884 N.W.2d 661,
   668, 670-672.



                     TOPIC   5. LAW-FIRM   STRUCTURE AND OPERATION

                TITLE  A. ASSOCIATION   OF  LAWYERS IN LAW ORGANIZATIONS

   § 9. Law-Practice Organizations-In General

   Ga.App.2016. Subsec. (3) quot. in sup. Partners at a law firm brought an action for, inter alia, breach of
   the duty of loyalty and breach of fiduciary duty against law firm's former associate attorney and her new
   firm, alleging that associate breached her duties to plaintiffs by taking eight cases with her when she
   terminated her employment with plaintiffs' firm. The trial court denied in part defendants' motion for
   summary judgment. This court affirmed in part, holding that there was a genuine issue of material fact
   as to whether associate was a fiduciary owing a duty of loyalty based on her status as law firm's agent.
   The court looked to Restatement Third of the Law Governing Lawyers § 9(3) for guidance on when a
   lawyer leaving a firm could solicit the firm's clients, and explained that there was a factual dispute
   regarding when associate's employment terminated, which affected whether she breached her duty by
   soliciting firm's clients before the end of her employment. Tolson Firm, LLC v. Sistrunk, 789 S.E.2d
   265, 269.
