OPINION

Appellants David LeBlanc, Hedy LeBlanc, LeBlanc Family Investments Limited Liability Company, Shreveport GP, LLC, Shreveport Doctors Hospital 2004, Ltd., and Shreveport Hospital Management, Inc. (collectively, ―LeBlanc‖) challenge the trial court’s rendition of summary judgment in favor of appellees B. John Lange, III (―Lange‖) and Ethicus Healthcare Group, LLC (―Ethicus‖) in LeBlanc’s suit against Lange and Ethicus for declaratory judgment, breach of fiduciary duty, legal malpractice, deceptive trade practices, negligent misrepresentation and conspiracy.*fn1 In five issues, LeBlanc contends that the trial court erred in concluding as a matter of law that: (1) there was no attorney-client relationship between LeBlanc and Lange; (2) there was no ―special relationship‖ between LeBlanc and Lange that gave rise to a fiduciary duty; (3) the settlement agreement at issue here was fair; (4) Lange did not breach a formal or informal fiduciary duty to LeBlanc; and (5) Lange was entitled to summary judgment on the issues of illegality, duress, and unconscionability.
