doing business with a client - conflict 8 Years, 3 Months ago Karma: 3  
Doing business with a client is a conflict of interest if you are doing business business that is similar to the client other business in which you advised him on. So, if you decided to do business with a client, at what point to you stop acting at the attorney for the client? Or can you continue to act as the client's attorney? What is common practice for NJ attorneys? What are you having them sign as a conflict waiver?

You can continue serving as the attorney for the client, just make sure that you have the client sign a conflict waiver after he or she consults with separate and independent legal counsel. Clients do business with their attorneys all the time.

Do you have a sample conflict waiver you can share?
