Clark Hill Attorney William B. Dunn to Present “Lawyers Without Boundaries? Keeping the UPL Out of Your MJP” to the American College of Real Estate Lawyers on March 28, 2015
GRAND RAPIDS, MI – Clark Hill Attorney William B. Dunn will present Lawyers Without Boundaries? Keeping the UPL Out of Your MJP to the American College of Real Estate Lawyers (“ACREL”) on Saturday, March 28, 2015. Dunn’s presentation will discuss the rules of the profession relating to unauthorized practice of law and practice outside the jurisdiction where the lawyer is admitted; and the less-than-adequate solutions of Model Rules of Professional Conduct and even less comforting solutions of state adaptations of those rules and enforcement policies to what is increasingly common Lawyering activity that crosses state lines physically, virtually, and substantively.
ACREL, the premier organization of U.S. real estate lawyers, is an invitation only membership. Nationally-known lawyers are elected to fellowship for their outstanding legal ability, experience and high standards of professional and ethical conduct in the practice of real estate law.
Dunn serves as "Of Counsel" in Clark Hill's Real Estate Practice Group. He specializes in real property, secured transactions and related business practice, as well as legal ethics and professional responsibility. Dunn served on the American Bar Association's Standing Committee on Ethics and Professional Responsibility over a span 1998 – 2006, and as its chair 2005-2006; and served on the State Bar of Michigan Professional Ethics Committee between 2003 – 2010, and as its chair 2007-2010.
Over his long and active career, Dunn has been, and continues to be, routinely involved in a broad spectrum of sophisticated real estate and commercial transactions.
