As mentioned in yesterday’s blog post (“Conflicts tune-up: 5 steps to avoiding conflict of interest claims“), lawyers do not always do the best job identifying potential conflicts on interest or taking the appropriate steps when conflicts may exist.

practicePRO’s Managing Conflict of Interest Situations booklet can help lawyers better manage this risk by identifying, checking for and managing conflict of interest situations.

The CBA’s Conflict of Interest Taskforce also has an extensive toolkit of checklists and precedents that are intended to help lawyers to recognize, deal with and avoid conflicting interests.
