Spouse's Business Transaction Violates Rule

A Colorado attorney was publicly censured based on his conditional admission that he had "negligently failed to terminate an attorney-client relationship when he learned that his wife was involved with a business transaction with his client. He therefore effectively entered into a business transaction with his client without appropriate disclosures. [He] also failed to make reasonable efforts to ensure that his wife/employee's conduct was compatible with his professional obligations." (Mike Frisch)
