Conflicts of Interest

Conflicts of interest have constituted a leading cause of legal malpractice claims for years. Despite repeated warnings to lawyers and law firms about this risk, they continue to engage in conflicts of interest. The consequences for lawyers who betray their duty of loyalty to a client can be severe and include legal malpractice lawsuits, disqualification motions, bar disciplinary complaints, loss of reputation, sanctions, and disgorgement of legal fees.
