Familiarize oneself with the (relatively) new conflict of interest rules for professional attorneys and CPAs. Examine the seven types of potential client conflicts and the possible safeguards / mitigators that, with informed client consent, may allow going forward notwithstanding the conflict. Learn what client signed documentation is helpful if a professional goes forward notwithstanding the existence of the conflict. Explore actual court reported case decisions that can be referred to later for treatment and authority applying the new rules.
