Divorce of Lawyers

12/13/2008

A lawyer, who wanted to leave a law firm and begin his own practice, contacted Larkin Hoffman for advice about how to separate from the law firm quickly and ethically, while retaining his client base. The Larkin Hoffman team, led by Joe Fittante, advised the lawyer about his duties to the firm and to his client base. This advice helped the lawyer extricate himself from the prior relationship while complying with his ethical duties and business obligations. Jon Swierzewski, Larkin Hoffman in-house counsel, was instrumental in advising the client on his ethical obligations before, during and after his separation from his former firm.
