It’s time for another edition of What Say You Wednesday. Today’s poll question: should Vermont amend (or rescind) Rule 5.4 so as to allow nonlawyer ownership & management of law firms, as well as multidisciplinary practice.
The poll is HERE.
To make an informed decision, here are some options:
- Read last month’s issues paper from the ABA’s Commission on the Future of Legal Services; or
- Read my series of blog entries on the issues paper.
- Is it time for nonlawyer ownership? An introduction to ABS?
- What is ABS and who allows it?
- ABS: Arguments in Favor
- ABS: Arguments Against
- ABS: How’s it doing?
Of course, as anyone who knows me would tell you, the road to where I find myself today is littered with uninformed decisions. So, I totally get it if you just want to skip to the vote. However, to paraphrase the old Gatorade ad, “don’t be like Mike.”
Please forward this blog post to colleagues.
