Conflicts Check - no idea what to list

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Feb 21, 2017 2:48 pm

1st year transactional attorney lateraling. Firm extended offer contingent on conflicts check. I worked on a 1,000 small matters where I played such a small role that I have no idea who the client actually was, who the adverse party is and really any information. Additionally, most of my information got wiped from my email at my current firm.

How many things do you think I need to list just to make the conflicts check look normal?

You got a lateral offer six months into the job?

This shouldn't be hard at all. Just go to either your billing software or your firm's conflicts department and ask for a printout of your matters because you're trying to make a deal sheet. Easy-peasy, dude. You got this.

If your firm is smaller than that, then make a list of matters which you had substantial involvement in.
