Sherin and Lodgen Launches New Legal Ethics Program to Help Law Practices Reduce Business Risk

October 16, 2015

Boston, MA, October 13, 2015 – Boston law firm Sherin and Lodgen LLP unveils a new Outside General Counsel Program to assist law practices with professional liability and legal malpractice issues and questions. An extension of the firm’s successful Professional Liability Group, this new legal service helps lawyers prevent disputes involving ethics, professional standards of practice and malpractice. Sherin and Lodgen’s experienced legal team serves as outside general counsel to law firms – from solo and small practices to mid-size and large law firms— providing real-time legal advice on a range of legal ethics issues. Clients have access to the resources and services equivalent to a large law firm’s in-house general counsel. The Outside General Counsel Program helps lawyers:

  • Avoid potential costs and liability arising from conflicts with current and former clients
  • Avoid time and risk associated with “muddling through” ethical requirements
  • Ensure communications are privileged, confidential and not discoverable
  • Access focused, experienced ethics and general counsel expertise

According to Debra Squires-Lee, co-chair of the Business Litigation and Professional Liability Practice Groups, “The representation of lawyers and law firms is a highly specialized field involving the intersection of ethics, professional standards of practice and malpractice. The involvement of an insurer only adds to the complexities. With our Outside General Counsel Program, the goal is to help law practices get in front of professional liability issues and eliminate their business risk.”
