Conflict of Interest Detection

Conflict of interest (COI) occurs when one of the parties involved in a business or dispute has vested interest in favoring the other party.

It happens when the interests of one of those involved are in conflict with the interests of its shareholders, customers or business partners, especially in commercial competitions in which one of those involved would be satisfied with any of the results precisely because he/she would profit from the victory of either party. It is a type of corporate fraud.

This is the case of a director or shareholder who advises or participates in an opposing or supplier company, getting inappropriate advantage. Fairly common example of conflict of interest occurs when a professional person, doctor or lawyer etc., suggests to its clients procedures or unnecessary actions or even damaging to sell a product or service, their conflicting interests with the person that consulted you.
