Canon 30

PARTNERSHIPS: NAMES. In the formation of partnerships for the practice of law, no person shall be duly admitted who is not a member of the legal profession, duly authorized to practice, and amenable to professional discipline. No person shall be held out as a practitioner or member who is not admitted. In the selection and use of a firm name, no false, misleading, assumed or trade name shall be used. The continued use of the name of a deceased or former partner may be permissible by local custom, but care shall be taken that no imposition or deception is practiced through this use. If a member of the firm becomes a judge, his name shall not be continued in the firm name.

Partnerships between members of the State Ear and members of other professions or non-professional persons shall not be formed or permitted where a part of the partnership employment consists of the practice of law.
