Conflicts of interest come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Whether or not they are detected or reported, conflicts or potential ones routinely take place at law firms and board rooms. Their severity and type vary depending on what role you play with regard to clients, matters or cases, and what position you hold in your organization.
While the concept may seem cut and dried, conflict of interest can be a complex concept. People sometimes believe that “the fact of a conflict” is itself the wrong so they ignore it. The real wrong is moving forward while knowing a conflict exists.
