ABA revisits rule change on conflict of interest

The proposed changes to the ABA’s Model Rules are a result of more lateral movement among partners as opposed to associates, said Monroe Freedman, an ethics scholar and professor at Hofstra University School of Law. Freedman, who is credited with writing the first attorney ethics treatise in 1975, opposes changes to the rules regarding firm-to-firm conflicts.

“There are so many lawyers with big firms who are highly influential and well-represented in the [ABA] House of Delegates,” Freedman said.
