Are you aware of the situations which create conflicts of interest? Can you clearly identify who is the client, and to whom you owe fiduciary duties, including the duty of confidentiality? What about attorneys who refer you cases and who may owe duties to you and to others? This is the course for identifying and handling conflicts of interest and avoiding lawsuits! We will examine common conflict of interest situations and how to resolve them (including conflicts of interest created by your attorney!). We will also provide checklists for fiduciaries to use when they first take cases to determine whether they are safe from actual or potential conflicts of interest.
