It is not proper for an attorney to solicit indemnification from a corporate employer which limits the liability of the attorney's own legal malpractice. It is not improper for an attorney to solicit indemnification from a corporate employer for malpractice resulting from the attorney rendering advice to third parties at the corporate employer's request provided the attorney does not limit his liability and is, in fact, liable for malpractice.
