An Attorney Taking an Assignment

Hello:
 
I just had a quick question.  Can attorneys take a % of an assignment in place of a fee?   Is there not a conflict of interest in these cases?
 
thanks

An attorney can take a partial interest in a patent in lieu of an up-front fee.  And some do.
 
There certainly can be conflicts of interest, as in any partnership-type arrangement.  But generally the attorney is on the same side as the inventor.  Both parties want a strong patent issued and a successful business.
