    Hi,

    My ex-wife has been using a lawyer for the last 4 months and my current partner's ex-husband has just started using the same lawyer.

    ls that a conflict of interest?

    Thanks in advance

    Does the lawyer even know?

    Is the lawyer acting in a matter involving either of your ex-whatevers and either of you?

    Thanks for replying Tim.

    Yes, we are both currently going through settlement negotiations.

    The lawyer is representing both our exes against us both as separate matters.

    I assume he knows, but not sure if he will tell them. Not sure if it would be considered a conflict of interest.
