Conflicts Checking

Article by Brook Boehmler

Many firms conduct an initial conflict check at the beginning of each case, when opening a new matter. But that approach is no longer enough to protect your clients, and your firm. If you don't run ongoing, sophisticated conflicts checks through the lifespan of a case, you may pay the consequences.

Article by John L. Mellitz

FEW THINGS hold more potential trouble for a lawyer than getting entangled in a conflict of interest. Traditionally, lawyers have relied on their client lists to avoid conflicts of interest. After all, if you want to avoid representing people with opposing interests, you review the people you have represented to identify potential conflicts of interest. Yet, we are always reading about lawyers who have become caught in a web of conflicts. Obviously, there has to be a better way to manage this critical function.
