I am wondering if Ian can't use this against her to add to his case to the bar about her.
He asks her to take a case for him. Even if she decines to take the case, isn't it an ethical violation to go tell the party that he wanted to file a suit against about it. If a person approaches a lawyer to take a case for them, are they bound to confidentiality even if they refuse the case?
Even if that is not an ethics violation in itself, doesn't it strengthen his case against her?
Posters who know something about law and ethics, what do you think?>
