Description:
When done correctly, fee sharing is not only ethical–it leads to better outcomes for clients. This program will survey the various regulatory frameworks utilized by states concerning referral fees with the goal of providing lawyers with working understanding of how to employ this tool to benefit their clients and grow their practice. 
 
We will discuss:
 
Common misconceptions when it comes to referral fees
The ABA Model Rules
What it means to be ‘jointly responsible’
What disclosures are necessary for an ethical fee sharing agreement
States with unique regulatory frameworks
