Re: Parent, Sub, & One Doing Legal Work For The Other Miss Gradenko March 21, 2012 11:38 am
I've done it and didn't think much of it. In that case, I advised ParentCo on how to manage a troublesome employee. ARguably, if EE sued ParentCo and my name/advice came up in a dep, we'd have an attorney-client problem. And in that case, ChildCo might be subject to suit for tortious interference. But I'm not sure that a Child can technically interfere between its Parent and a 3rd party.

ParentCo loved me and sent me a token gift.

If you really want to walk the straight and narrow, perhaps a joint defense agreement and/or an explicit indemnity agreement where ParentCo indemnifies Childco for any 3rd party claims.
