From Washington Lawyer, February 2004

The February 2004 “Speaking of Ethics” column (“Of Counsel”) discussed the implications and the allowances for the “Of Counsel” appellation and its listing in the firms self-presentation. The column also discussed the implications, allowances and restrictions of including the name of an attorney who might be “Of Counsel”, retired, deceased or of another consideration with regard to the firm. This “Speaking of Ethics” column at the beginning listed as Ethics Committee consideration Rules 1.5,,7.1,and 7.5.

The Legal Ethics Committee opinions listed were opinions 151, 224, 277, 192, and 255.
