“A lawyer shall not engage in another occupation in circumstances in which a conflict of interest may arise between his employment as a lawyer and the other occupation.”
The prohibition against acting in a conflict of interest means that one must refrain from working in a dispute between two different claims; for example, a contractor’s attorney cannot represent an apartment buyer other than registration operations.
In some cases, a lawyer cannot be in a compound where a conflict of interest may arise.
In such a case, the lawyer can neutralize the dangers lurking for him and act appropriately.
The legislature left the matter to the lawyer’s discretion while placing restrictions, a kind of protection for the lawyer and the client.
