When Lawyers Split Up

A dispute between two lawyers who had been associated with each over entitlement to fees in two cases after the junior lawyer had departed was addressed in a lengthy opinion of the Nebraska Supreme Court. The attorneys had a complex written agreement. The court ruled that an aspect of the agreement with respect to one of the matters violated the restrictions on right to practice provisions of Rule 5.6 and was thus void on public policy grounds.
