What reasons would you have for not taking on a case? How would you justify it?
knowing somewhat the client is guilty
There is no reason not to accept a case, except that the damage is against me or my loved ones.
If there was a conflict of interest eg I had advised an opponent.
Conflict of interest, case not suitable for our firm or my area of expertise (I would not handle a divorce case, for example). In most cases I would discuss the reasons for not taking on a case openly.
Depends on the case. Impossible to answer
I would never refuse a case on Data Protection as I know I have the ability to put forward a positive argument to prevent the client from getting stung.
Only if there is a conflict of interest.
There are three main factors I always consider:
1. Is the subject matter of the case something I am competent to handle?
2. Is the client going to be a problem or will they be truthful and trust my advise?
3. Will the client be able to compensate me for the value that I provide to them?
If any of these questions result in a "No", I will not take the case. If I were to take any case wherein the answer to any of the questions is "Yes", it would not be ethical, that is how I justify not taking the case.
I would not take on a transaction if I thought the Lease was not in an acceptable form or the client was difficult and would not listen to reason or the advice that you give them
