On October 14, 2014, Law Times quoted Ben Hanuka about a recent Ontario Superior Court of Justice ruling relating to a law firm’s conflict of interest allegation.
Ben Hanuka was quoted with the following commentary:
…[T]he firm did nothing wrong in deciding to end its retainer with Stewart. Just as clients have the right to fire their lawyers, counsel can choose to drop their clients, he says.
What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.
As long as it’s not under circumstances that require a court’s leave — for example, there’s a trial – or situations covered under the rules of professional conduct, then there’s no legal principle that should bar either side from terminating the relationship.
