Law firms have Chinese walls too!

Since posting about Chinese walls in investment banks, I have been reading about Chinese walls and conflicts of interests in law firms, which may often represent a client on a position that may conflict with the interests of other current or past clients.
If you're interested, you may want to look at Legal Week's discussion of what may constitute a conflict.
And here's an article about "The trouble with conflicts" on a law/economics blog.
