Abstract:     
Are you an attorney who is thinking about soliciting clients of a competing law firm or leaving your current firm and taking clients and colleagues with you? You should pause before doing so and consider the possibility of being liable for a claim of tortious interference.

This short article explains when attorneys could be liable for tortious interference and discusses several acts that are improper and actionable (such as taking client files with you).
