The real estate industry is fiercely competitive as developers and contractors, investors and lenders, brokers and others – most with the aid of legal counsel – seek advantage.

This often puts real estate lawyers in difficult ethical spots.

Some of the many conflict of interest issues that can arise include how to ethically represent a real estate partnership and its partners, or represent a long-term developer client and a long-term lender client in separate transactions, or represent two developers who are seeking to buy the same property.

There are also substantial ethical issues in taking an equity stake in lieu of lawyers’ fees and what to do if you discover your client is engaged in fraud on a lender or counter-party.

This program provides a real world guide to common ethics issues in real estate practice.

  • Representing clients with competing real estate interests
  • Joint representations of a business entity and its owners in a real estate transaction
  • Representation of a client with adverse interests in unrelated transactions
  • Communications with unrepresented parties – and with represented parties
  • Inadvertent disclosure of confidential deal terms
  • Receipt of deal equity in exchange for legal services
  • Special issues when client fraud is discovered
