The first step in every ethics analysis is answering the question, who is your client? It’s seemingly a very easy question to answer, but it’s not always 20/20 except in hindsight.

Representing multiple parties on the same matter, whether in litigation or on a transaction, may mean you have many clients, some or all with conflicts. If you’re a private practitioner and you represent an organization, your client may be the entity, its officers from whom you are taking directions, or possibly both. If you’re an in-house attorney, the analysis – and its implications for the attorney-client privilege – becomes even more complex.

This program provides a real world guide to ethics of identifying your client in a variety of settings avoiding conflicts of interest with the client.

  • Ethics and identifying your client and avoiding conflicts in transactions and litigation
  • Representing businesses entities, nonprofit associations, and the government – client v. person giving directions
  • Identifying clients in trust and estate planning – the testator or the person paying your fees?
  • Special ethical challenges and ethical risks for in-house counsel and attorney-client privilege issues
  • How to untangle clients and conflicts in joint representations – managing conflicts and information flows
  • Best practices in documenting client representation to avoid later challenge
