In case you didn’t know, learning confidential information that is adverse to your current client will disqualify you

According to Flatt v Superior Court (1994) 9 C4th 275, 36 CR2d 537, an attorney obtaining confidential information from a potential new client can disqualify him or her from continuing to represent an existing client, even if the attorney decides not to accept representation of the new client.
