About the Product

Trade Associations as Clients

A lawyer who represents a trade association may not represent a client litigating against an individual member of the association if the individual member stands in a client-lawyer relationship with the lawyer, unless (1) the lawyer reasonably believes his or her relationship to the individual member will not be adversely affected; and (2) the member and the litigation client each consent after consultation. If the lawyer neither has undertaken the representation of the individual member nor otherwise stands in a lawyer-client relationship with that member, the lawyer may represent the litigation client provided that (1) representation of the litigation client will not be materially limited by the lawyer's responsibilities to the trade association or the individual member; and (2) the litigation client consents after consultation.
