Attorney for Legal Ethics and Professional Responsibility in New Orleans
Over 40 Years of Experience in Ethics Matters
When disciplinary complaints are made against lawyers and law firms, they
threaten not only an individual lawyer’s ability to practice law,
but also the firm’s capacity to operate effectively. Lowe Stein’s
lawyers understand the nature and potential consequences of disciplinary
complaints on every level. We have the practical knowledge and experience
to vigorously represent our clients.
Law Firms Organization and Structure
Choosing the legal status of a new or existing law firm can be complex.
Compensation structures, liability concerns, and
tax issues are but a few of the matters that need to be weighed in making the appropriate
business model selection. Whatever choice is made, written agreements
clearly expressing members’ understanding of all aspects of the
firm’s operation and structure are essential.
Our lawyers have advised law firms on all aspects of:
- Lateral hiring
- Partner separation
- Law firm compensation structures
Lowe Stein lawyers have 40+ years of legal experience, which has included
counseling law firms from creation to dissolution.Where a change in a
firm’s structure is contemplated or required, as the result of a
merger or other significant event, our lawyers are available to guide
the firm through the alternative choices to arrive at the most efficient
and appropriate outcome.
Partnership Disputes, Withdrawals, and Dissolutions
Partnership disputes and law firm dissolutions are an unfortunate but recurring
reality in the legal profession. That does not mean that these events
need to be “messy.” To the contrary, their potentially negative
consequences can often be significantly mitigated.
We have represented both individual lawyers and law firms in these situations.
They have dealt with many varied ethical and legal issues. When there
is room for negotiated solutions, our lawyers seek them.
In the event of an unavoidable firm dissolution, Lowe Stein’s lawyers
can facilitate the winding-up process so that it is conducted in as orderly
a manner as possible. However, when there is no choice except to resort
to arbitration or litigation, we are there to help.
