Paul Butler Will Participate in the Panel "Tax Practice Management/ California’s New Rules of Professional Conduct" at the ABA Tax Section Fall 2019 Meeting

In 2018, the California Supreme Court approved a comprehensive re-write of its rules of professional conduct. California has now joined the other 49 states in adopting ethics rules patterned after the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct, effective November 1, 2018. The rules are binding on all attorneys licensed by the California State Bar and, importantly, may apply to non-California lawyers who practice in the state. Our panel will discuss the new rules, including how they apply to tax practice, including where they may conflict with Circular 230, and where they differ from the ABA rules. The discussion will emphasize how the ethical standards that apply to California attorneys have changed.

Moderator: Roger Royse, Royse Law Firm, Menlo Park, CA

Panelists: Karen L. Hawkins, Hawkins Law, Yachats, OR; Paul T. Butler, Kostelanetz & Fink LLP, Washington, DC; Neil J. Wertlieb, UCLA School of Law, Los Angeles, CA
