Representing a client in a business, commercial or real estate transaction can get ethically complicated very quickly.
There is the question of who you represent.
In a closely held company, with multiple shareholders or members, this can be problematic if the officer or manager from whom you are taking instructions thinks you represent that person and not the entity.
The client may offer you the opportunity to buy into a transaction, which puts your role as lawyer in tension with your role as stakeholder.
There are also substantial ethical issues involved in negotiations, whether the party on the other side of the transaction is represented by legal counsel or not.
This program provides a real world guide to the ethics of representing clients in business, commercial, and legal transactions.
