What is a Conflict of Interest?
A legal “Conflict of Interest” may arise where one person’s legal matter is related to a Legal Service Provider’s client.A Legal Service Provider may be unable to legally assist you where a conflict of interest arises, as that could compromise their client’s best interests. A legal practice could identify a Conflict of Interest at any time, even if they had already agreed to assist you.

If you are informed that we have a Conflict of Interest in your matter, please be aware that:
– This does not mean we do not want to help you;
–  All legal practices are bound by the same Conflict of Interest rules;
– We cannot provide any further information regarding the conflict; and
– We suggest that you seek alternative legal advice or representation.
