Professional Responsibility Resources
As ironic as it may seem, even a lawyer and other professionals need legal counsel from time to time. The practice of law in today’s business and professional world involves hazards for all professionals - no matter the area of practice or size of firm.
Kegler, Brown, Hill & Ritter’s professional responsibility practice team counsels lawyers, law firms and judges in complying with today’s detailed rules, and assists those in need of responsive representation. In addition, our attorneys represent doctors, pharmacists, dentists, accountants, stockbrokers, registered investment advisors, real estate brokers and other professionals.
Our professional responsibility insight stems from legal team members who have held elected and appointed offices at the local and state levels, including a former chair of the legal ethics committee for the Ohio State Bar Association and a former Disciplinary Counsel of the Supreme Court of Ohio.
Kegler Brown attorneys advise clients on Rules of Conduct, as written and as applied, ethics opinions and interpretations of rules, and complexities and uncertainties caused by the use of new technologies.
