Case Synopsis

In this appeal, the Nevada Supreme Court had to determine whether an attorney that enters into a fee-sharing agreement and is later suspended from the practice of law is still entitled to fees recovered in cases that the attorney has an expectancy interest in. The Court concluded that if the attorney completed all work on the cases before his/her suspension, and the suspension is unrelated to the attorney’s conduct during the cases, the attorney can recover any fees in cases they had an expectancy interest in.
