This week’s social networking policy tip is very important for the Firm. We will focus on respecting client confidentiality.
Tip #3 – Respect Client Confidentiality. Clients are accorded confidentiality rights. No reference to clients should be made in any online posting. All of the privacy, confidentiality and privilege regulations and statuses that apply to our clients and their information apply to online information as well. Even oblique references can have difficult consequences. An Attorney made a post about working long hours. Since the Attorney was known to be working on a case for a public company that information triggered speculation in that company’s stock. Even seemingly innocuous information should not be posted online.
