July 1, 2015: Mark Your Calendars for the New Massachusetts Rules of Conduct.
The New Massachusetts Rules have been in the works since 2013 when the SJC’s Standing Advisory Committee on the Rules of Professional Conduct published its proposed revisions to the Rules. The changes to the Rules are significant and thus will impact your practice. Many of these changes are based upon revisions to the ABA Model Rules and then adapted by the Standing Advisory Committee. On October 24, 2014, the Court announced its intent to adopt many of the proposed changes, and then held oral argument on certain rules in dispute.
Before you dive headfirst into the new Rules, take a look at our post, here, highlighting some of the key provisions, as well as this summary on Mass.gov.

Furthermore, not to fear, we will have many more posts on this topic throughout the next few months. Check back for information on the most important and relevant provisions to your practice.
