In his book, Mr. Flamm gives an overview of the fundamental principles of conflict of interest law, related statutory law, as well as, the rules of professional conduct.  Subsequent chapters discuss the attorney-client relationships that may present a conflict of interest – favored, former and prospective clients.  The author also covers the more practical aspects of avoiding and handling conflicts.

Mr. Flamm was the speaker at last May’s 17th Annual Bernard E. Witkin Memorial Symposium organized by ACLL. He is one of the nation’s best known authorities on legal and judicial ethics. The former chair of the Ethics Committees for San Francisco and Alameda Counties, Mr. Flamm has a private consultation practice in Berkeley.
