Once in awhile, lawyers whose practices involve business transactions are asked to represent both sides to a transaction.
On the surface, this seems like a reasonable plan: why waste money on separate representation when no one is at odds with anyone else?
Everybody’s happy – they are all about to embark on a journey that will net them lots of money, and they don’t need a lawyer to rain on their parade.
These adventures rarely end well.
