71-Representing Corporations

A lawyer may represent a Chamber of Commerce (which is a separate corporation) while at the same time suing one of the Chamber's members, as long as the lawyer discloses the lawyer's role to both clients who are Chamber members, and the Chamber [it is unclear from the LEO whether the lawyer must obtain consents, although the summary indicates that the lawyer must do so.]
