Lawyers advising businesses on transactions or negotiating on their behalf often confront a range of important ethical questions.
The biggest is, who is your client? Often a company’s owners or managers will not understand the distinction between representing them and representing the company?
There are also issues of identifying and clearing conflicts among clients when they are negotiating deals with each other. Negotiation issues – how far can a lawyer go in representing a client? – are also an area of substantial risk.
Also, lawyers are sometimes confronted with issues about what to do when clients are dishonest.
