XXX.... puede representar o defender, en juicio o fuera de él, a cualquier empresa distinta del Cliente en cualquier tipo de material o sunto distinto o que no guarde relación con el que el Cliente le haya encomendado, aun cuando ello implique o presuponga desarrollar nuestra labor frente a los intereses de su compañía o los de alguna de sus filiales..."
Explanation: IMO "frente" in this context is used in the sense of "enfrente de los intereses ....) which I would translate as "towards" (not against) his attitude towards the Company´s interests: whether my assumption is correct or not should result from the text´s context.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Hi Ellen, I'm not quite sure (because of the use of "aun cuando" earlier in the sentence.
Explanation: I believe the wording has to be "sensitive" here. They want to reserve their rights, but they don't want to alienate their prospective client by including something in the contract that may seem to go against the client, even though it is. I would not use "against" or "opposition" even though they transmit the meaning. Instead, I would use something closer to "frente" that has a friendlier tone.
puede representar o defender [...] a cualquier empresa distinta del Cliente [...] aun cuando ello implique [...] desarrollar nuestra labor frente a los intereses de su compañía....
can represent or defend ... any other business not being the Client's ... even when it may involve ... performing our duties which may be in contrast with the interests of your company....
