Rory P. Pheiffer, a partner in Nutter’s Intellectual Property Department, served as a panelist at the Boston Bar Association’s (BBA) “Practicing with Professionalism” program on October 7. The Boston Bar Association is an approved provider of the course, as required by Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court Rule 3:16 on Practicing with Professionalism, which requires a mandatory course on professionalism for new lawyers admitted to the Massachusetts bar, effective September 1, 2013. The panel addressed how to respond to the pressures of practice that challenge even the most reputable attorneys to behave with civility. Attendees learned from the specific experiences of the panel about how they might respond to the challenges in a professional manner. Topics included building your reputation, managing relationships with colleagues inside and outside of your office, company or firm, managing relationships with opposing parties, and managing client relationships.
