As firms restructure to meet increasing economic demands, numerous ethical, practical, and financial issues arise as lawyers move from one firm to another or from private practice into another sphere. Hillman analyzes and clarifies all the urgent legal and ethical ramifications of lawyer mobility including: disputes over the existence of a partnership; restrictive covenants; disincentives to competition; one-sided fee-sharing agreements; notices of withdrawal; Section 42 elections for withdrawing partners; files as property of clients; retaining liens; enforcement of ethics standards through arbitration; collateral consequences of account settlement provisions; compensation for discharged firms; pre-departure solicitation; and profit allocation.
