Is it common for a law firm to ask for a lateral to fill out a conflicts form before the first interview? It was my understanding that such a step typically occurred much later and right before formal offers are made.

This is usually the last step. I’ve had several interviews where the firm asked for an earlier conflicts check, usually when they had a lot of equally qualified applicants.
