Can I give notice as soon as I accept an offer?

NO. You should ALWAYS wait to clear conflicts before giving notice. Although it rarely happens, it is possible that a conflict exists that a client can’t, or won’t, waive. In that case, a firm will have to rescind the offer. NEVER give notice until you’ve cleared conflicts.
