Know How to Handle a Conflict of Interest?

In-house counsel often face serious conflicts of interest. A variety of conflicts can arise on a daily basis that may present you with an ethical dilemma. For example, has an outside counsel ever asked you to waive a conflict? Have you ever been asked to provide joint representation on behalf of your company and an internal staff member, for instance, on an employment matter?

As noted by Devika Kewalramani, a partner at Moses & Singer LLP, “In-house counsel are often called upon to resolve murky conflicts issues where the risks are likely to be high and the available ethical guidance is less than adequate on the unique conflicts challenges they tend to encounter.”

Lexis® Practice Advisor, a practical guidance resource specifically designed for in-house counsel, provides comprehensive coverage of transactional matters including Identification of Conflicts of Interest. Within the Corporate Counsel module you will find legal ethical guidance on handling specific conflicts of interest, as well as practical guidance and insights across a broad range of other topics, industries and transactions.
