B-1, r. 3.1 - Code of Professional Conduct of Lawyers

Full text
29. Before accepting or pursuing a mandate, a lawyer must bear in mind any limits to his skills in light of the area of law involved or the nature of the professional activities required, the time available for carrying out the mandate and the possibility of collaborating with another person.
If he believes such limits will jeopardize the quality of his services or the proper protection of the client’s interests, he must so notify the client and advise him about the conditions for the performance of the mandate so the client can make an informed decision.
A lawyer who, with the consent of the client, undertakes or pursues a mandate notwithstanding the limits identified, must take reasonable means to obtain the necessary assistance for its performance.
