Prof. Linda Galler’s Article ‘Ladder Safety: Disclosure of Corporate Client Confidences’ Published in Brooklyn Journal of Corporate, Financial & Commercial Law
Professor Linda Galler’s article, “Ladder Safety: Disclosure of Corporate Client Confidences,” has been published at 6 Brooklyn Journal of Corporate, Financial & Commercial Law 553 (2012). This article demonstrates that the theory underlying ABA Model Rule of Professional Conduct 1.13(c), which grants lawyers the option to reveal certain client confidences on a discretionary basis, does not work. Despite some compelling reasons for permitting disclosure of clients’ “bad” behavior, Professor Galler argues that an economic analysis dictates that it should be a rare case in which a lawyer will actually disclose a client’s “bad” behavior.
