The Board may authorize examinations of the books and records of any lawyer or law firm selected at random. Only the lawyer or law firm's books and records may be examined in an examination under this section. (b) Particular Examination. Upon receipt of information that a particular lawyer or law firm may not be in compliance with RPC 1.15A, the Chair may authorize an examination limited to the lawyer or law firm's books and records. Information may be presented to the Chair without notice to the lawyer or law firm. Disclosure of this information is subject to rules 3.1 - 3.4. (c) Audit. After an examination under section (a) or (b), if the Chair determines that further examination is warranted, the Chair may order an appropriate audit of the lawyer's or firm's books and records, including verification of the information in those records from available sources.
