The Pennsylvania Disciplinary Board has proposed a number of amendments to the Rules of Professional Conduct:
The amendments focus on changes in detection of conflicts of interest, outsourcing,technology and client development, as well as technology and confidentiality. Comments on the proposed changes will be due May 16, 2013.
The [Notice of Proposed Rulemaking], running more than 12,000 words, is far too extensive to summarize in the scope of this newsletter. It is well worth the time of any practicing Pennsylvania attorney to look through the NPR and familiarize him or herself with the proposed changes, and to submit comments if appropriate.
