For my regular ethics column in the current issue of The Bencher, the national publication of the American Inns of Court, I summarized a Florida appellate court decision that discussed the issues of legal ethics involved in the same lawyer representing a majority shareholder and the corporation. In allowing the same lawyer to represent the shareholder but not the corporation, the court discussed the principles involved under Rules 1.7, 1.9 and 1.13. Also included are cites to a few other cases that discuss related issues. For a copy of the article download file.
