Under Model Rule 1.1, a lawyer may outsource legal services provided the lawyer remains ultimately responsible for the legal services and that the services are provided competently. The lawyer must take reasonable efforts to ensure the covering lawyer acts responsibly by maintaining direct supervisory authority over the covering attorney. Run the Call provides such reasonable efforts by vetting the coverage attorneys (e.g. the attorney is in good standing, maintains malpractice insurance, and signs the Coverage Attorney Agreement and W9).
