Ethically Representing Clients Who Copy Documents, Record Conversations, and Download Files
A client walks into your office with a box of evidence. The box contains copies of documents, secretly-recorded conversations, and thumb drives full of data downloaded from his employer’s computers.
You may not realize it, but that box also contains complicated ethical and legal issues.
What happens if you start reading the documents and realize that they contain privileged attorney-client communications? Can you put that genie back in the bottle?
What if your client violated federal criminal laws by downloading financial data from computers that he was not authorized to access? or took sensitive trade secrets? or HIPAA-protected medical records?
You need to know the answers to these questions before you open that box. Acting improperly could not only damage your client’s case, it could subject you to disqualification, a malpractice lawsuit, an ethics complaint, and even criminal charges.
Several years ago, John developed a CLE program on this topic that became one of the top-rated programs on Lawline.com. He is now offering a new and updated version. Unlike most CLE programs, this one is actually interesting, fun, and useful. You have a choice of several sessions on different dates. And for a limited time the CLE credits – including ethics credit – are free.
