Legal ethics as three-dimensional chess: Our duties to persons other than our clients
Sieberson, Stephen C.
This article will highlight where the Nebraska RPCs require or at least suggest that we look to the interests of others as we represent our clients. In this analysis, we will review the Preamble and Parts 1 through 4 of the Rules. Part 1 addresses the client-lawyer relationship, Part 2 certain special roles of a lawyer, Part 3 the lawyer as advocate, and Part 4 a lawyer’s dealings with persons other than clients. In each of these areas, we will identify where the Rules and their Comments guide our responsibilities to third persons and beyond.
