Start Your Research Investigation
Prior to accepting new engagements, HAI | Legal undertakes a standard conflicts check to ensure that we are free and clear to work on your matter.
For a conflicts check we will typically need the following information:
- Your ultimate client
- Adverse parties
- Named co-defendants (if potentially adverse)
- Name of specific sites (if applicable)
- Type of legal or regulatory matter
- Case citation for the legal matter (if available)
Once we confirm that we are clear to work on the matter, HAI | Legal will schedule a project briefing to discuss scope and potential level of effort.
