Model Rule of Professional Conduct 5.7

Definition

The ethical rule that governs a lawyer’s responsibilities with regard to law-related services. The rule provides that professional-conduct rules apply to the provision of law-related services if the services are provided in circumstances that are not distinct from the provision of legal services, or if the services are provided by an entity controlled by the lawyer and the lawyer fails to ensure that the person obtaining the services knows that the services are not legal services and that there are no protections of the attorney-client relationship.
