August 14, 1970


It is not improper for an attorney retained by insured to represent her

in a personal injury action to also undertake to represent insurer on a

subrogation claim under its policy against insured's defendant for

expenses of insured paid by insurer pursuant to insured's policy, so long

as such representation is undertaken with the consent of both insurer and

insured after full disclosure. [See II: DR:5-105(C).]
