You may have already seen this, but there's some good stuff by Max Bazerman in this kind of territory.

If I remember right there's a bit of evidence that requiring disclosure of potential conflicts of interest makes it more likely that the conflicted party will act in their own interest rather than that of the client. The theory is that having provided the warning the conflicted party feels that they have 'done their bit'.
