In their presentation at McAfee & Taft’s 2017 Corporate Counsel Seminar titled “Navigating the Process of Conflicts and Waivers,” attorneys Myrna Latham, Mike Lauderdale and Joe Lewallen review the American Bar Association’s rules as it pertains to the client-lawyer relationship, with a specific focus on identifying conflicts of interest and the conditions under which a waiver is desirable and can be obtained.

Topics include:

  • Why conflicts of interest are on the rise
  • Conflicts of interest triggers
  • “Consentable” conflicts
  • Informed consent requirements
  • Revoking consent
  • Special considerations in common representation in transactions
  • Why current clients and former clients are treated differently for conflict of interest purposes
