Representing two or more clients in a business or commercial transaction is full of potential ethical traps.
It’s essential that clients understand the potential for conflicts of interest, how confidential information is shared among the joint clients, how negotiating strategies may be altered because of the joint representation, and the real risk to the transaction if the clients eventually develop unresolvable disputes among themselves.
