Triangular Lawyer Relationships: An Exploratory Analysis, 1 Georgetown J. Legal Ethics 15 (1987)

Abstract

This article examines the nature of a lawyer's responsibilities where the
lawyer's client has a special legal relationship with another party that modifies
the lawyer's "normal" professional responsibilities. This legal relationship
is termed "triangular," denoting the coexistence of a linkage of legal
responsibility between the lawyer's client and a third person along with a
linkage of professional responsibility between the lawyer and the client. The
combination results in a special legal relationship between the lawyer and the
third person.
