Neil Wertlieb Writes About Conflicts of Interest

Neil Wertlieb’s article, entitled “What Transactional Lawyers Should Know About Conflicts of Interest,” was published in 2016 in the Business Law News, a publication of the State Bar of California.  Unlike litigants, parties to a business transaction often share common goals and interests. The presence of a common goal, however, does not mean the absence of a conflict of interest. Mr. Wertlieb’s article discusses how to identify, analyze, and address potential conflicts of interest, with special attention focused on issues commonly faced by transactional attorneys.
