Every Tennessee lawyer knows there is an ethical restriction on communicating with someone represented by counsel. When the parties to a case are individuals, resolving questions about whether they are represented by counsel and whether the communication would relate to the matter in which they are being represented are straightforward. When one or more parties to a matter are organizational entities, however, questions can be (or at least can seem to be) less clear. This program will explore the interrelationship between RPC 1.13 governing representation of organizational entities and RPC 4.2 on communication with represented persons.
