February 19: Web - The Ethics of Conflicts of Interest

Conflicts of interest can bedevil both litigators and transactional lawyers. The relevant rules seem complicated and highly technical, and the decisions interpreting them sometimes give inconsistent guidance. But get it wrong and you can face discipline, disqualification or a civil lawsuit. This two-hour program will give practical advice about how to handle conflicts of interest: When are you barred from representing multiple clients or appearing adversely to a current or former client? When is the representation permitted with the clients’ informed consent, and how should consent be obtained? How do courts handle alleged conflicts when they are raised in disqualification motions? Which conflicts are the most frequent subject of disciplinary decisions and lawsuits – and how can they be avoided?
