Communication with another solicitor’s client
In our regular in-depth ethics case study, Professional Standards Manager Rob Reis discusses a recent case.
A solicitor must not deal directly with the client or clients of another solicitor except in the circumstances prescribed in Rule 33 of the Legal Profession (Solicitors) Conduct Rules 2015 (ACT). This rule is known across the legal profession as the ‘no-contact’ rule. The following case studies are intended as guidance for members who might be faced with similar circumstances.
