Opterra Law, Inc.’s policy is to check for potential conflicts of interest before receiving any information that may be considered confidential. Because of our duties to our existing clients we reserve the right to share any information we receive from you unless and until we notify you that (1) we do not have any conflicts of interest, and (2) we are willing to receive confidential information from you. Thus, in initiating contact with Opterra Law, please do not provide any information you do not want us to share with others.
Until we notify you that we have no conflicts of interest and that we are interested in communicating with you about undertaking your representation, please do not send any information other than: (1) the general nature of the matter about which you are contacting us; (2) the identity of any other party who might join you as a client of Opterra Law in this matter; and (3) the identity of all potential adverse parties and known key witnesses. Once again, please do not provide us with any information you want kept confidential unless and until we inform you that we have no conflicts and are willing to receive confidential information from you.
Furthermore, in order to establish an attorney-client relationship with Opterra Law, we require a written retainer agreement that defines the scope of the representation and that is signed by both the client and Opterra Law. Electronic signatures will not suffice to establish an attorney-client relationship.
Our procedures are designed to protect the interests of our existing clients as well as the interests of potential new clients communicating with our firm.
