ISBA Mutual Lunch and Learn: Managing and Avoiding Conflicts of Interest
By ISBA Mutual
February 24, 2020 (Chicago) Part of a series of Lunch and Learns presented by ISBA Mutual Insurance Company. Conflicts of interest are one of the primary causes of legal malpractice claims in Illinois. Claims may arise when checks are not undertaken or are performed ineffectively, where conflict waivers are either not used or fail to identify or explain the conflict properly, or where conflicts that arise during the course of an engagement go unaddressed. This lunch and learn was focused on helping lawyers avoid conflicts, through appropriate conflict check systems and via effective conflict waivers.
