Legal Ethics for Transactional Attorneys

Gain an understanding of ethical standards, challenges, and obligations commonly encountered while engaged in transactional work.

The rules of professional conduct have their own unique application in the transactional context, and all attorneys, including estate planners and litigators, engage in some form of transactional work. For example, drafting a settlement agreement by a litigator is in the nature of transactional work. In a transactional setting, there can be a conflict between the obligations the attorney has to the client and the attorney's duties of honesty and truthfulness. Additionally, professional conflicts can arise in unsuspecting ways in a transactional setting. This topic is designed to provide an overview of ethical standards and obligations commonly encountered while engaged in transactional work.
