VSB Withdraws Thirteen LEOs Related to Advancing Costs and Expenses

Effective November 18, 2021, thirteen Legal Ethics Opinions related to a lawyer advancing costs and expenses have been withdrawn because they have been superseded by amendments to Rule 1.8, Conflict of Interest: Prohibited Transactions.

The Virginia State Bar's Standing Committee on Legal Ethics also updated Committee Notes on six LEOs to note the application of Rule 1.8(e) to those opinions.

The thirteen withdrawn LEOs and those with Committee Notes may be found here.
