Maintaining Client Confidences, Candor and Advocacy in Litigation: How Close to the Chest Do You Hold You Cards?
Presented by: Jerry Hawkins

Litigators know that some lawyers practice with all thoughts and information held very close to the chest, others litigators practice with more of an open book, exchanging thoughts, strategies and information freely and openly. Contrasting to the more limited attorney client/privilege, is it really true that every piece of information in your file or learned through the case “confidential” under Rule 1.6?   If so, how can lawyers communicate with one another or with third parties without passing each communication by the client for approval?   When are disclosures “impliedly authorized in order to carry out the representation,” when should you be seeking client consent before speaking?  In this webinar, we will discuss the duty to maintain client confidences, the “impliedly authorized” exception and its interaction with the lawyer’s responsibilities to the client, witnesses, opposing counsel and the court under KRPC 1.4, 3.2, 3.3, and 4.1.  


Jerry Hawkins is a partner in the firm of Hite, Fanning & Honeyman, L.L.P. He practices principally in the areas of health care law and medical malpractice defense, and also focuses a portion of his practice on civil litigation representing clients in personal injury and wrongful death matters.   Jerry is a frequent speaker on matters of interest to the legal profession.
