The Unfinished Business Doctrine

The Unfinished Business Doctrine

The Unfinished Business Doctrine is a rule with respect to how the work of a dissolved law or other professional firm will be handled upon the firm's dissolution. Recently, even as the New York Court of Appeals rejected the Unfinished Business Doctrine with respect to fees earned by attorneys on hourly fee arrangements, the Colorado Supreme Court upheld the doctrine with respect to both hourly and contingency fee arrangements. A short article of reviewing these developments was published in the February, 19th issue of Business Law Today.

Tara McGuire, a student at the University of Louisville of Law School of Law who will be joining Stoll Keenon Ogden this fall after she passes the bar exam, served as co-author with me.
