Confidentiality vs. Attorney-Client Privilege. What does each mean and are you up-to-date on your duties as an attorney? Attorneys are constantly obtaining sensitive information about their clients, witnesses, third parties, and others. But, what information is protected from disclosure and what information can an attorney disclose freely? In this seminar, we will explore the ins and outs of confidentiality. We will review the differences between the attorney-client privilege and confidentiality. We will review real-life case studies and the adverse consequences of breaching confidentiality and/or the attorney-client privilege. We will also delve into the work-product doctrine, as well as obtaining consent waivers. This seminar will provide any practitioner with practical guidance on guarding confidentiality and averting common risks and pitfalls.
