Representation Of Corporate Principal Does Not Bar Later Representation Of Corporation

In PMG Collins, LLC v. R and G Enterprises, LLC (3D09-3171), the Third District reversed a decision disqualifying counsel for one of the parties "on the grounds that the law firm had previously personally represented one of the principals of the plaintiff LLC in unrelated matters."  The court stated "Without exploring any other infirmity in the order, the simple, acknowledged fact that counsel did not represent the plaintiff itself and thus cannot be in forbidden conflict with its interests renders the order completely unsupportable."
