DecisionsPrior Firm Not Disqualified In Representation of Opposing Party

June 3, 2020

Interesting ethics opinion in matrimonial case Dudhia v Agarwal. Basically the wife in that case retained Firm A and was working with Attorney X. Subsequently Attorney X left Firm A for Firm B and wife transferred her representation to Attorney X at Firm B. The husband subsequently retained Firm A.

A disqualification motion was denied because, while there was a presumption of conflict, Firm A rebutted that presumption by demonstrating through various affirmations and affidavits, that no confidential material was retained by Firm A and, there was no appearance of impropriety since their screening procedures allowed only a few attorneys were working on the matter in representation of the husband.
