Looking for a Little Help Researching “Of Counsel” Arrangements

I’m working on a little research project, maybe it will turn into an article, on the practical aspects of “of counsel” arrangements between lawyers and law firms.
In part, my working hypothesis is that “virtual law firms” (I know that some of you don’t like that term, but bear with me) will be founded on the evolution of “tried and true” legal relationships between lawyers rather than on some kind of new form of “affiliation” or other relationship model.
It seemed like a straightforward topic, until I started doing a little research and couldn’t find much of anything.
Here’s what I’m looking for some help on:
1. Collections of resources, outlines and articles on this topic (non-premium resources, to the extent possible). Send me the URLs.
2. If you are willing, sanitized copies of “of counsel” agreements so I can see what the standard approaches are.
3. Information, including anecdotal info, about financial and other arrangements and the successes and failures of this approach.
4. Discussion of ethical and practical issues.
I’ll create a page of links to the best of the resources I find and post it here and/or on my website.
Thanks for your help.
