Can I sell my law practice? How do you close a law practice? If I leave my current firm and join another, what can I tell clients and when?

This two-part program identifies the key ethical duties arising out of these transitions and offers some practical suggestions on the steps lawyers can take in order to accomplish an orderly, fair and efficient transition that meets our fiduciary obligations.
