Partner Michael S. Karpoff to Speak at the 37th Annual Community Association Law Seminar
The 37th Annual Community Association Law Seminar is sponsored by the Community Associations Institute. The Law Seminar will be held in New Orleans - January 27 - 30, 2016.
Mr. Karpoff will be speaking on the following topic on Friday, January 29th.
The Attorney/Client Privilege and Confidentiality in Community Associations
The attorney/client privilege is the oldest privilege protecting communications and has been well-developed by the law. Yet when the client is a membership organization such as a community association, there can be a great deal of confusion. Every attorney who represents associations needs to understand the reach and limits of the privilege and related confidentiality issues. This session will improve such understanding and is particularly pertinent to attorneys for whom organizational representation is new.
