3-Multiple Representations on the Same Matter

60-Lawyers Acting as Trustees

A Virginia lawyer acts as a Chapter 7 bankruptcy trustee for a corporation and related individuals. Although the trustee does not act as a lawyer, the trustee must comply with the Virginia Code. Therefore, the trustee must resign as trustee for both the corporation and the individuals when it becomes apparent that the corporation has a claim against the individuals.
