This article discusses the complicated lawyer-client representation issues raised when a family entity (such as a family limited partnership) is created. The article also addresses the issues, and material risks, associated with the multiple representation by one lawyer of the entity, the general partner and the limited partners. Depending on state law and the entity involved, some lawyers may be surprised to learn that the creation of the entity might force them in the future to withdraw from representing everyone in the family.
