After more than three decades of intensive work in the field – as a litigator, educator, author, consultant and expert witness – it is probably fair to say that Richard E. Flamm has become a prominent figure in the field of legal and judicial ethics. In fact, when it comes to the subject of conflicts of interest – as well as disqualification of attorneys, judges, and other participants in litigated matters – Mr. Flamm undoubtedly ranks among the best known and most respected experts in the world today. See Whitacre Inv. Co. v. State, 113 Nev. 1101, 1116 at n.6 (1997), Springer, J. (“contained in the moving papers is an opinion, in affidavit form, expressed by Richard Edward Flamm, the leading authority on judicial disqualification”). The author of three leading nationwide treatises on conflicts and disqualification, in 1995 Mr. Flamm opened what was (and continues to be) the only firm in the nation that is devoted exclusively to providing consultation and/or expert witness testimony with respect to matters involving conflicts of interest and/or disqualification of attorneys, judges and others. Mr. Flamm has been retained to serve as a consultant on these topics by numerous solo practitioners and small firms, as well as by several of the nation’s most prominent law firms and Fortune 500 corporations. In his expert witness capacity, Mr. Flamm has testified in dozens of cases in various states. Mr. Flamm has also testified before the Subcommittee on Courts and Competition Policy of the Judiciary Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives.
