Annual Ethics Program Conflicts of Interest: A Practical Roadmap

May 5 or May 7, 2020


McGuireWoods invites you and your colleagues to attend Tom Spahn’s annual ethics program as a webinar in place of the recently canceled in-person spring programs. This webinar will be held on two separate days to allow you to select the day that best suits your schedule. The two-hour interactive program uses hypotheticals to explore basic conflict-of-interest rules.


  • The prohibition on adversity to current clients (including definitions of “client” and “adversity”)
  • Rules governing adversity to former clients (including the “substantial relationship” standard and “hot potato” rule)
  • Consents (including prospective consents)
  • Disqualification motions’ standards, process and effects
