Are Communications With Non-Employee Consultants Protected From Disclosure?
By Thomas V. Marino & Eva Adaszko
In the words of the U.S. Supreme Court, the attorney-client privilege “is the oldest of the privileges for confidential communications known to the common law.”(1)
Dunnington, Bartholow & Miller, LLP recently defeated a summary judgment motion in a lawsuit brought by its client, a venture capital firm, seeking payment for shares of a portfolio company sold to outside investors.
On November 14, 2013, Dunnington, Bartholow & Miller LLP triumphed in a major case for Germany’s Vorderasiatisches Museum (part of the Pergamon Museum), obtaining the return of a 3,200-year-old Assyrian amulet in a landmark decision, Matter of Flamenbaum, by the New York Court of Appeals, New York’s highest court.
Dunnington is very pleased to announce that it has become a member of the Cicero League of International Lawyers. CICERO is an international network of independent law firms, primarily in the corporate, commercial, and property sectors, which allows members to gain access to and collaborate with law firms in other jurisdictions.
