Who Can You Talk to Confidentially About a Client Dispute?
A dispute has arisen between you and a client. You are not exactly sure how to handle the situation, so you walk down the hallway to your law partner, or the firm’s general counsel, or another attorney in your office to get some advice.
You describe what happened, revealing the good and the not-so-good, and your colleague advises you on how to deal with the client, and what to do differently in the future with your other clients to avoid the situation from arising again.
