Unbundling services: The growing trend of limited scope representation
September 23rd, 2012 by Briana Cummings
Demand for more cost-effective legal services models, increased interest in self-representation, and advances in technology have made unbundled legal services (limited scope representation) more appealing to clients.
Limited scope representation applies to a range of areas of law, such as family law, employment law, consumer issues, insurance coverage, and small business assistance.
Model Rule 1.2(c) allows a lawyer to offer limited scope representation “if the limitation is reasonable under the circumstances and the client gives informed consent.”
