The way lawyers practice law and maintain their offices has shifted. Not every law office or practice is located in a conventional office building with a physical address and support staff. Many lawyers now have “virtual” offices or practices. They work from home or in shared offices that they only occasionally visit. Communication with clients is over the telephone and via email. There are many advantages of virtual law offices for lawyers and clients, including flexibility and reduced costs. But these virtual arrangements also highlight certain ethical duties. This program will provide you with a framework of ethics issues for virtual law offices and practices, including multi-jurisdictional issues, candor about the nature of the lawyer’s office or practice, duties to supervise outsourced work, confidentiality in electronic communications, and more.

• Ethics issues for virtual law offices and practices
• Licensure – understanding the requirements and risks of multi-jurisdictional practice
• Candor – duties to disclosure the nature of a virtual office to clients
• Supervision – ensuring that outsourced work is competently performed
• Confidentiality – protecting electronic communications from disclosures
• Competence – associating with sources of expertise to serve client needs

Thomas E. Spahn is a partner in the McLean, Virginia office of McGuireWoods, LLP, where he has a broad complex commercial, business and securities litigation practice.  He received his B.A., magna cum laude, from Yale University and his J.D. from Yale Law School.
