Date: Friday, February 5, 2021
Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM ET
Attorney Mark Mikhaiel will review the best practices to ensure attachment of the attorney-client privilege in instances where a client identifies an “agent” to act on their behalf.
Who is the client? Is it only the individual that a lawyer has a written or oral agreement to represent? Or could it extend to the client’s spouse, neighbor, or friend? Many lawyers have been in situations where clients bring their trusted confidants and loved ones to meetings, but does the privilege attach to all in the room in those situations? What about meetings where the client sends their friend and/or trusted confidant to communicate directly with the retained lawyer? When does the attorney-client privilege attach to these communications and when is the privilege waived by the presence of a third-party? Click here for event details.
The Akron Bar Association (Akron Bar) originated February 20, 1875 when approximately 50 attorneys drafted the first organizational constitution. William H. Upson served as President, Sidney Edgerton as First Vice President, M. C. Reed as Second Vice President and N. D. Tibbals as Third Vice Presidents, George N. Wright as Secretary, and John J. Hall as Treasurer. The Akron Bar sought, “…to maintain the honor and dignity of the Profession of the Law, to cultivate social intercourse and acquaintance among the members of the Bar, and to increase their usefulness in aiding the administration of justice, and in promoting legal reform” (Akron Bar Association Minutes, 1875). The Association has served as the primary guardian of the Summit County legal system and illustrates a magnanimous history of advocacy, education, and community service.
