Board sets St. Pete retreat

first_img August 15, 2005 Regular News Board sets St. Pete retreat Board sets St. Pete retreat A ‘full discussion’ of Bar and section relations is planned A retreat to examine the relations between The Florida Bar and its sections and a variety of other ethical, advertising, and multijurisdictional practice issues will occupy the Bar Board of Governors at its August 26-27 meeting in St. Petersburg.The meeting will be the first in the Bar’s 2005-06 year, and the first in new President Alan Bookman’s administration. It will also be a joint meeting with the Young Lawyers Division Board of Governors.It was Bookman’s decision to have a retreat after the August meeting, and to focus on section/Bar relations as the topic. The board recently, after about two years of study, revamped its financial relationship with sections to reduce Bar losses for supporting section activities. The new policies, approved in June, also encourage sections that operate efficiently, perform important functions, and conduct profitable CLE courses and in many cases are projected to boost sections revenues.“This will be an open and full discussion of the relationship between the Bar and the sections,” Bookman said in a letter inviting board members and section officials to the retreat. “We will talk about services the Bar provides, the needs of the sections, and other hot buttons.”The board will also consider policies relating to multijurisdictional practice rules recently approved by the Supreme Court. Those rules require that out-of-state attorneys coming into Florida to appear in trials or do arbitrations register with the Bar and pay a $250 fee per case.The approved rules did not address what to do with those funds, but the special committee that drafted the rules recommended that 10 percent go to the Clients’ Security Fund, and the remainder to the grievance program to help defray its extra costs of policing the MJP rules. A related decision will be whether to allow clients who use those out-of-state attorneys to file claims with the Clients’ Security Fund.On ethics and advertising matters, the board will hear an advertising appeal on what constitutes a testimonial (which is prohibited in lawyer ads) and whether a testimonial can be included in information provided at the request of a potential client.The board will also get its first appeal involving a law firm Web site. Under Bar rules, Web sites do not have to be submitted for Bar review, and are given greater latitude than other forms of advertising. The appeal involves a site which was voluntarily submitted for review, and involves questions about whether lawyers can say they specialize in certain areas, whether some language creates unjustified expectations, and the use of photographs.The board will also take a look at an issue referred by the Professional Ethics Committee. That came from the state’s Ethics Commission, which posed a question about whether a city attorney could represent a city councilman before the commission, an activity that appears to be prohibited in some instances by Ethics Opinion 77-30.The PEC said it could not answer the question because it did not come from a lawyer inquiring about his or her own prospective action, or from the board.The board will also make an appointment to the Florida Bar Foundation Board of Directors, for an unexpired term that ends next June.last_img read more

Video briefing: what’s next in dairy drinks?

first_imgYazoo – Choc-Hazelicious  Launch date: September 2020Avocado dip brand Holy Moly has hopped over to RTDs with a trio of flavoured shakes. Plant-based and low in fat, Strawberry Almond, Chocolate Almond and Banana Almond Nutshakes are launching into Sainsbury’s in 750ml and 250ml bottles. What’s hot?So we’ve seen premiumisation continue at steady growth. And of course, coffee is really going nowhere. As coffee culture has grown in the UK we’ve seen coffee RTDs, new flavours and now we expect to see more.  What’s not?Protein and breakfast drinks. Breakfast has been heralded as the most important meal of the day and this makes it the one where consumers are least likely to compromise. It’s been really hard for brands to get this right and to balance nutrition and taste perfectly and as a consequence there are only a handful of winners. Consumers are seeming to switch back out for other products that meet their tastes.What’s next?Dairy alternatives. They’re growing at a rate of knots and much faster than any of the other health trends. And sustainability: it’s an ever-growing focus in consumer’s minds and it incorporates everything from farming to packaging disposal. Shaken Other – Strawberry Coconut Milkshake Launch date: September 2020Shaken Udder has just launched its first plant-based product, Shaken Other. The Chocolate flavour launched in Tesco in July and the Strawberry flavour is due to launch in Sainsbury’s on 23 September. Holy Moly – Nutshakecenter_img What’s new?
