Confidentiality – a word of advice to you owners, officers, and directors.

When you communicate with your entity’s attorney, if the communication has to do with legal action or regulator issues – do all you can to protect the confidentiality of the conversation the two of you are having.

If you “cc” an MLO, a processor, or for that matter any other third party other than an attorney, you may unwittingly place confidentiality at risk. You may find that emails which you intended to be private – become the subject of discovery.

All too often I see compromising situations where in the event of litigation or regulator action – your attorney client privilege might be vulnerable.

That’s it for now.
