Proposed amendments to MRPC 5.5

The MSBA’s Rules of Professional Conduct Committee is recommending some changes to MRPC 5.5 to address issues raised in a recent decision upholding a private admonition for the unauthorized practice of law. In the case (A15-2078), an attorney in Colorado provided legal advice to a relative in Minnesota and attempted to negotiate with a Minnesota attorney on behalf of that relative. The proposed changes have been sent to the Lawyers Board of Professional Responsibility for their feedback.  The committee plans to have final recommendations to the Assembly in time for its September meeting.
