Attorneys - Shared Office Space.


February 2, 1987


An attorney shares office space with a law firm located in a large

building. Access to the attorney's office may only be gained by going

through an area entirely utilized by the sharing firm. Under the

circumstances, it would be appropriate for the attorney to emplace a sign

in the elevator lobby or the lobby of the sharing firm to clearly identify

the attorney's status as a solo practitioner having no connection with the

sharing firm. [ DR:2-101(A) and (C); LE Op. 754]
