Practicing bankruptcy poses many challenges, including those arising under the Bankruptcy Code and Rules, local rules, common law and rules of professional responsibility. Identifying and avoiding conflicts is difficult. Knowing who your client is and to whom you owe a fiduciary duty is not always clear. Questions include: Does disclosure, alone, cure all? If not, how and can you resolve the problem? Is multiple party representation permitted? And, if allowed, do you still want to go ahead? Competence is more than knowing the law – it is understanding your role and how to practice within “the rules.”
