Rule 5.4d provides in part, that "A lawyer shall not practice with or in the form of a professional corporation or other form of association organized for profits, if:
(4) in the case of any form of association other than a professional corporation the organic law governing the internal affairs of the association provides the equity owners of the association with greater liability protection than is available to the shareholders of a professional corporation."
Rule 7.2k provides in part that:
"...if a lawyer or law firm advertises for a particular type of case that the lawyer or law firm ordinarily does not handle from intake through trial, that fact must be disclosed. A lawyer or law firm shall not advertise as a pretext to refer cases obtained from advertising to other lawyers."
The Committee is of the opinion that your proposed name is permissible and complies with the Rules of Professional Conduct as long as the limitation of liability is not greater than that permitted by Rule 5.4d(4), and provided the firm handles medical malpractice trials from intake through trial as required by Rule 7.2k.
CAVEAT: The foregoing opinion is advisory only and is based on the facts as set forth above. The opinion is not binding on the Disciplinary Board of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania or any court. It carrier only such weight as an appropriate reviewing authority may choose to give it.
