SOCIAL MEDIA ENDORSEMENT POLICY 

In our ongoing effort to maintain compliance with the ethics regulations in the jurisdictions in which our lawyers are licensed, the Firm has adopted the following Social Media Endorsement Policy, effective 1 February 2018: 

What's an Endorsement? 

An endorsement is an active statement regarding quality of services or products. Mere listing as a friend, follower, or contact on any social media network is not an endorsement of the listed person's services or products. 

Endorsements from the Firm

We are presently limiting our social media endorsements to (i) other lawyers and (ii) current or former clients of the Firm. 

We will not provide you with a client or peer endorsement unless we actually know something first-hand about your services or products. For clients, this usually means we have had an opportunity to use or test your services or products. For peers, this usually means we have had the opportunity to work with you in court (same or opposite sides), on a bar committee, or on a continuing education panel.

For clients, as a means of protecting the fact that you are a client of the Firm, we will not endorse you unless you request us to do so; and we will not post any new endorsements while we are currently representing you in any matter in which the quality of your service or product is being disputed. 

Endorsements About the Firm 

We will not post your endorsement about the Firm unless you have first-hand knowledge about the Firm's services. Such knowledge may result from, for example, representation by the Firm, attending a CLE course presented by a member of the Firm, or working with one of our lawyers on a bar committee. 

If you are a client, take note that endorsing us may result in public assumptions about the work we have done for you. As an example, you should not endorse us for Bar Complaint Defense if you are concerned that readers of the endorsement might assume we defended you against a Bar Complaint. 

Additional Notes 

This Social Media Endorsement Policy applies to the extent we have the ability to control posting or removal of the endorsement. Once an endorsement is posted to a social media site, it is possible for that endorsement to be propagated around the internet by third parties. The Firm makes no promises to police or control such propagation. 

The Firm does not condition any endorsements upon reciprocation. 

Nothing in this policy is intended to create a right to receive an endorsement. The Firm reserves the right to withdraw any endorsement previously given, at any time, for any reason, without notice. 

The Firm reserves the right to amend this Social Media Policy, at any time, for any reason, without notice.
