Since the landmark decision of the House of Lords on conflicts of interest in Bolkiah v KPMG, closely followed by the conflict considered in the Pinochet case, there has been massive interest and a series of important judicial decisions in this area of law. How should professionals manage conflicts of interest and client confidentiality in an era when mergers of professional firms make these problems all the more acute? The second edition of this acclaimed work analyses the currect situation in what is a fast-moving area. Each professional sector is examined in detail and advice is offered on strategies for assessing and managing conflict situations. All recent developments are covered, including the growth in complaints about judges' conflicts of interest and conflicts arising from knowledge gained from former clients, most notably Hilton v Barker Booth & Eastwood. The authors offer answers to questions such as: * What is a conflict and when does it arise? * How do Chinese Walls operate and when are they permissible? * What are the remedies for a client when his adviser acts for the other side? * What difference has the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 made?

This is the first book to look over that [Chinese] wall and attempt to analyse the law in relation to conflicts of interest... a book that lawyers and other professionals should be keen to add to their library.The text is authoritative, but the material is presented in crisp fashion and the authors are laudably loath to sit on the fence...This is a welcome publication of considerable importance to a wide range of professionals and those working in the corporate world.Mr. Justice Aikens rightly describes this book, in its foreword, as a 'trail blazer'.Although this text is directed at a British audience, it is a valuable acquisition to the library of probably any Australian practitioner, and its purchase is recommended.Altogether, Conflicts of Interest & Chinese Walls is a most useful compendium.
