A webinar presented by the IBA Professional Ethics Committee
Lawyers are duty bound to serve their clients. Rules of professional conduct invariably require lawyers to serve their clients with competence, diligence and loyalty – requiring them to avoid, or at least disclose, ways in which the lawyer’s interests may conflict with those of the client. The lawyer-client relationship is also commercial, with the lawyer typically entitled to demand payment from the client for services rendered. That commercial relationship inherently creates the potential for conflict.
The rules of professional ethics recognise this potential for conflict. This webinar will present an open discussion and comparative analysis about the different approaches that might be taken in respect of this conflict, which will be beneficial to both private legal practitioners and in-house professionals.
