Waiving in the Dark?

As nearly $4 million in fees hang in the balance, the California Supreme Court debates whether and how firms can effectively use advance conflict-of-interest waivers, particularly with sophisticated clients. Amici Stephen Raucher (Reuben Raucher & Blum), Jennifer LaGrange (Spertus, Landes & Umhofer), and Richard Painter (U Minn. Law) offer competing views, and describe the potential ramifications on law firm practice and the availability of legal representation as momentous.
