Edward S. Cheng published in Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly on attorney’s ethical obligations when publishing discussions about their clients and cases
Edward S. Cheng, partner in the firm’s Litigation Department, was published in the October 16th issue of Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly. His article, “To blog or not to blog: that is the ethical question,” details attorney’s ethical obligations when publishing discussions about their clients and cases and the unethical disclosure of client information.
Ed’s article references ABA Model Rule 1.6, which is the main concern for attorneys discussing their matters, as it forbids the disclosure of client information. The article also details the American Bar Association’s Formal Opinion 480, which discussed the ABA’s interpretation of the application of Rule 1.6 to attorney blogging and social media publications.
