LEGAL PROFESSION FORUM: Client Conflict Waivers: Requesting and Obtaining Effective Consent
An increasing number of both damage claims and disciplinary complaints against law firms are based on an alleged breach of client loyalty. The underlying cause: inadequate, or non-existent, client consent - in writing - to the firm's actual or potential conflict of interest. The best way to avoid such claims, and the resulting exposure for fee disgorgement and punitive damages, is the drafting of timely and comprehensive conflict consent letters.
Managing partners, loss prevention partners and executive directors or administrators of Connecticut law firms were invited to join Pullman & Comley attorneys David P. Atkins and Marcy Tench Stovall as they moderated this informal program to discuss components of effective client conflict consents.
