On occasion, we receive requests or questions from individuals or firms who are not our clients. Our typical clients are corporate end users, developers, governments and other corporate or governmental entities. Although we would like to hear from you, we cannot represent you until we know that doing so will not create a conflict of interest. Also, we cannot treat unsolicited information as confidential. Accordingly, please do not send us any information about any matter that may involve you until you receive a written statement from us that we represent you (an “engagement letter”).
To initiate a possible representation, call Michael Thelen at this telephone number (919)755.2154. He will determine if any conflict exists, and, if not, put you in touch with an appropriate lawyer. When you receive an engagement letter from that lawyer, you will be our client, and we may exchange information freely.
By contacting us and submitting any information to us through this blog, you agree that we may review any information you transmit to us. You recognize that our review of your information, even if you submitted it in a good-faith effort to retain us, and even if you consider it confidential, does not preclude us from representing another client directly adverse to you, even in a matter where that information could and will be used against you.
