LEO: Law Firm - Contracting to Sell Computer  LE Op. 914


Law Firm - Contracting to Sell Computer Software.


April 30, 1987


It is not improper per se for an attorney to contract to sell a computer

software package specifically tailored for medical collections to a

corporation, wherein the attorney's law firm maintains the exclusive right

to use the software package in the law firm's collection work for a period

of time. The committee cautions the attorney to be mindful of the

provisions of DR:4-101 and DR:5-101. [ DR:4-101, DR:5-101]
