Ethics: Conflicts of Interest

Originally presented:  May 14, 2018     |     Course length:  3.0 hours

Popular CLE presenter Tom Spahn returns to Minnesota to deliver another practical ethics program. Instructive and entertaining, this engaging presentation uses hypotheticals to address basic conflicts of interest rules, including:

  • The general rule governing adversity to current clients
  • The definition of “client” for conflict purposes (including corporations, associations, estates and others)
  • The definition of “adversity” for conflict purposes (including business adversity, adverse financial impact, discovery of clients and positional adversity)
  • The complex rules governing joint representation
  • The general rule governing adversity to former clients
  • Determining the status of an attorney-client relationship
  • Application of the “substantial relationship” standard
  • A lawyer’s ability to withdraw from a representation to cure a conflict (including the “hot potato” rule)
  • The type of consents that can cure a conflict (including the revocability of consents and prospective consents)
  • Courts’ approaches to disqualification motions based on conflicts of interest
