I’d guess almost never. Maybe if a firm works very heavily with a single client, you’re being hired for that client team and you have a conflict the client won’t waive.

Their reason for collecting your conflicts info is more to make sure they put the right ethical walls in place once you start working there so you’re not accidentally talking to firm lawyers you should be walled off from because you have a conflict with their client.

I’m interviewing for a non-technical, mid-senior level role at Stripe. I know culture is really important to them.

I know efforts like this can rub people the wrong way, so I just wanna be careful before deploying them. Anyone who works there or knows them able to comment on this?
