This additional Litigator’s Code of Conduct applies to attorneys undertaking litigation or representing clients in court.
IPReg is intending to add Guidance to Rule 3.4 as follows:
“Attendance by a responsible representative under Rule 3.4 will not be required where:
(a) the Court has ruled that such attendance is unnecessary; or
(b) Counsel has confirmed that they are satisfied that the interests of the lay client and the interests of justice will not be prejudiced by the absence of a responsible representative”
