LETTER TO CORPORATE OFFICER: DUAL REPRESENTATION
Re: Matter of ______________
This letter concerns this firm's representation of you and ________________, Inc. regarding the matter of _______________________________. We understand, as you do, that the activities of ______________________, Inc. relating to this matter in which you may have been involved, or may have obtained knowledge as an officer, are among other events, subjects of the matter now pending.
This firm knows of no conflict of interest between you and _______________________, Inc. that would disqualify us from representing both you and ___________________. Inc. If we learn of facts that establish such a conflict, or if we are convinced that such a conflict is imminent, we will advise you immediately and suggest that you retain separate legal counsel. We do not think it likely that such a conflict will develop, based on what we now know.
At the mutual request of you and _____________________, Inc., we have agreed to represent both you and _______________________, Inc. in connection with this matter.
If the foregoing is acceptable, we are pleased to represent you and ask that you sign and return a copy of this letter to us at your earliest convenience. A return envelope is enclosed for that purpose.
Very truly yours,
I agree to the dual representation of myself and __________________________, Inc.
