PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO THE RULES OF PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT FOR INSURANCE LAW AND OTHER PRACTITIONERS
On April 14, 2014, the Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia approved significant revisions to the West Virginia Rules of Professional Conduct and ancillary matters for a public comment period ending on June 13, 2014.  If approved, nearly every Rule of Professional Conduct and/or official comment will be amended.  This presentation will focus on the impending rule changes with the greatest impact on litigation practitioners including: changes to the procedures for securing waivers of conflict, retaining or contracting with other lawyers, ghostwriting, planning for assumption of clients upon a lawyer’s death or disability, keeping clients fully informed, preventing client fraud or criminal conduct, and a number of other subject areas.
