RPC Committee eyes succession planning

This bar year’s agenda for the Rules of Professional Conduct Committee includes reviewing the question of succession planning rules and the possibility of proposing one for Minnesota. Some states, such as Iowa, have made it part of the lawyer registration process to require attorneys to designate a successor to fill in as client contact for them should they become incapacitated or pass away suddenly. The committee is also reviewing recent changes to the ABA Model Rules related to lawyer advertising to see how they compare with Minnesota’s rules, and whether any amendments to Minnesota’s rules should be proposed.
