Tuesday, March 5
12pm to 2pm EST

Other than billing, there is virtually nothing lawyers dread more than checking, responding to, and resolving potential conflicts of interest.  Exploring “conflicts” issues inevitably focuses on why a lawyer should not take on a new matter rather than how to get the business in the door.  Left unidentified or unresolved, however, conflicts frequently result in huge costs and problems, far more than most attorneys imagine. 
This webinar discusses and explains best practices in identifying and avoiding conflicts of interest and minimizing risk.  It’s a must for any attorney seeking proactive solutions.  Topics include:
·  Systems for detection of conflicts
·  Difference between potential conflicts and actual conflicts
·  Multiple, successive and intermediary representation and conflict rules
·  Conflicts issues unique to specific types of representation
·  Methods for resolution of conflicts
·  Disclosures for ethics rule compliance
·  Documentation for claim avoidance
The webinar provides a checklist for “full disclosure” in both multiple and successive representations contexts.  It concludes with a helpful question-and-answer period.
