3-Multiple Representations on the Same Matter

58-Real Estate Lawyers

A lawyer may represent the buyer and seller in a real estate transaction as long as both consent and are advised of their right to retain independent counsel. [The lawyer would not be able to represent either the buyer or the seller if adversity developed between them.]
