Draft effective waivers

Dealing with conflict is part of practicing law. Nevertheless, lawyers must be especially mindful of when a conflict of interest might impair their duty of loyalty to clients.

With help from Chair of the State Bar Committee on Professional Ethics Dean R.

While a conflict waiver letter should be tailored to the fact-specific nature of the conflict1, there are essential elements to include to meet the informed-consent standard.
