Squires-Lee, a professional-liability attorney in Boston, said that the old rule was vague and that the extra guidance is welcomed. &ldquo;A lack of good communication is almost always a part of a malpractice claim,&rdquo; she said. &ldquo;It&rsquo;s usually just good business [to communicate].&rdquo;</p> <p>....&nbsp;</p> <p>Further, a lawyer is required to &ldquo;remedy false testimony and false statements,&rdquo; an obligation that extends through final judgment or exhaustion of appeals. For Squires-Lee, that calls to mind the Ferguson, Missouri, prosecutor who learned after the fact that perjured testimony may have been presented to a grand jury that ultimately decided not to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown.</p> <p>....</p> <p>Squires-Lee said that Rule 1.15 has always laid down a straightforward, specific set of guidelines &mdash; now even more so &mdash; which lawyers at small firms and sole practitioners should &ldquo;know by heart.&rdquo; She suggested getting in the habit of reviewing the rule annually, if not more frequently.</p> <p>....</p> <p>Debra Squires-Lee, a professional-liability attorney in Boston, suggested three steps law firms should consider taking with regard to cybersecurity: auditing the outside entities, drafting agreements to bind non-lawyers to safeguard confidential information, and setting up a system that would indemnify the firm if a security breach were to occur.</p> <p>&ldquo;You can imagine a scenario in which, on a third-party server, there is sensitive scientific information, trade secrets or other confidential information,&rdquo; she said. &ldquo;Lawyers are the weak link in protecting that information.
