Abstract

At one time, attorneys practicing corporate law throughout the United States had relatively uniform ethical obligations. The American Bar Association created the rules of conduct. However, some states have since revised their ethical standards for attorneys practicing corporate law. This article examines the Model Rules that relate specifically to corporate practice, reviewing provisions of the Model Code and Model Rules as well as critiquing the rules adopted by several states.

Keywords: ABA, Model Code, Model Rules of Professional Conduct, ethical standards
