Minnesota amends rules to allow flat fees

In the past, I have expressed my disagreement with the approach some jurisdictions take on the issue of flat fees (see here and here). Last October, however, I reported that Tennessee rejected the trend when it amended its rules (here).

Now comes news that the Minnesota Supreme Court also got it right, and has amended its Rules of Professional Conduct to allow, with certain notice requirements, an attorney to treat a flat fee as an attorney's property on receipt.

Thanks to the Legal Profession blog for the update.
