Law firms and their lawyers frequently make business or practice decisions that affect the conflicts of interest analysis. For example, is the law firm going to represent management in employment disputes or represent the individual plaintiffs? Can the firm do both? Should the firm do both? Issues also arise based on personal interests. Can the law firm represent a client in a litigation against a company owned, in part, by one of its lawyers? Should the firm do so? And, issues arise based on economic, but not legal, consequences to clients. Would a negative economic impact to one client in representing another client create a conflict of interest? These questions are some of the more difficult ones in conflicts analysis, but integral to ensuring the long-term success of the business. Finding the right answer can be critical.
