Blair H. Granger, Esq. & Jeffrey P. Lewis, Esq. present two new hypotheticals focusing on the role of counsel when engaged in representing multiple clients in the real estate setting. The first concerns representing multiple developers when the attorney comes into information that could help one client and not another, such as when the counsel finds out that the financing for one of the developers is going to be delayed, which will delay the development and could be of advantage to a competing client developer. The second hypothetical considers ethical issues that are raised when an attorney is representing multiple homeowners in a land use case and the ethical ramifications when involved in settlement discussions with the developer on behalf of some of those homeowners.
