Outcomes of Conflict of Interest
Typically a conflict of interest arises when the two outcomes will result in opposing benefits. These type of matters are very important as the outcomes can cause harm to integrity. A conflict of interest may also result due to personal and professional commitments. This may also arise when a same lawyer is representing both parties in a divorce. Legally, if a person has a direct interest in a matter, he is not allowed to take or judge the case. A conflict of interest may result in legal consequences and job loss. One of the most common type of this issue is nonacceptance of gifts from your clients.
