The COVID-19 pandemic has transformed the way we work. Family members attend school and work together or separately at kitchen tables, makeshift bedroom offices, and basements. Remote work is here to stay. Family members are present to varying degrees during virtual meetings and around-the-clock communications. Working remotely presents family and divorce lawyers, estate planning lawyers, fiduciary litigators, and financial advisors with unique ethical challenges, specifically how to preserve client confidentiality. This panel will outline some traps for the unwary and provide suggestions for balancing client confidentiality with the realities of COVID-era work. Topics will include:

  •  How to safeguard client information:
    • Model Rule 1.6 establishes the basic rule that a lawyer “shall not reveal information relating to the representation of a client
    • Safeguarding verbal communications
    • Video conferencing is here to stay even when social distancing no longer demands it.

 

  • Practical Recommendations for Work from Anywhere (WFA)
    • Embracing technology
    • Private workspace needs
    • Limiting distractions
    • Overprotect client information
