Recent commentary by Dan Bressler in the March 1, 2016 issue of the Law Firm Risk Blog on Conflicts concerns in the hiring of paralegals coincidentally touched on one of the subjects of our next commentary for Paragon’s Policy-Wise, a Risk Management Blog. Gilda Russell, one of our Preferred Providers, has written “Legal Ethics Concerns for Paralegals,” an article on some important ethics issues for paralegals. We hope that you will be able to circulate the article to your paralegals and that it will assist you in ensuring their compliance with the ethics rules. To access the article, press here.
