ACC Files Comments Supporting the State Bar of California’s Proposed Rule 1.7


ACC Position: 

On September 26, ACC and its California chapters sent a letter in response to proposed amendments to the Rules of Professional Conduct of the State Bar of California. ACC supports the Bar’s continued practice of limiting the enforceability of broad advanced conflict waivers. The letter addressed Comment 8 to proposed Rule 1.7 of the State Bar of California’s Rules of Professional Conduct, which, unlike the comments to ABA Model Rule 1.7, does not support the enforceability of broad, open-ended advanced conflict waivers against sophisticated clients.
