Abstract

Law firms face important ethical questions when it comes to potential clients who engage in what some see as morally questionable enterprises - from selling tobacco, gambling products, armaments and pornography to engaging in environmentally harmful activities. While it might sound like a rather "academic issue", the first step is for a firm to decide the approach it will take when solving ethical questions, because different approaches lead to very different answers when deciding who to serve and how.
