Loyalty, dedication and independence would be nothing but mere illusions, without a strict and systematic control of conflicts of interests.
Lawyers could not advise several parties with conflicting interests at the same time without sacrificing the interests of at least one of them. The search for, and fight against, conflicts of interest is crucially important in the field of business and commercial law.
This ethical obligation is paramount. It allows Clients to fully trust their Lawyer to work on their case in complete independence, taking into account their rights and interests only.
CITIZEN undertakes conflict-checks for every single of its files. When a conflict is detected, we immediately refer the case to a colleague.
When we accept to work on your file, it means that we can – and will – fully dedicate ourselves to its success, without any limitation whatsoever.
