Morning Mail: Thanks for Informative New Lawyer Column
Thank you for Lindsey Gray’s informative column for young lawyers in the January issue of NH Bar News. The article discussed the oft-neglected art of networking, which is a something that I was never very good at during my 30-odd years in New Hampshire.
The column mentioned referral fees, but did not cite any of the Rules of Professional Conduct thereunto appertaining. New Hampshire’s rule is surprisingly enthusiastic (to me, at least) about rewarding the referring attorney, because it allows “naked referral fees.”
For information on this charmingly-named phenomenon (and more), see the Rule and its commentary.
