Lawyers Must Navigate Client Privacy Before Suits See Public Eye
Ethics and Professional Responsibly Litigation Partner Nicole Hyland is quoted in the article, “Lawyers Must Navigate Client Privacy Before Suits See Public Eye” published by Bloomberg Law. The article discusses addressing privacy risks with clients before they proceed with litigation. Nicole is quoted saying, “Some lawsuits remain relegated to links on the public dockets, but others are boosted online or by the news media.”
In regards to publicity and media coverage Nicole notes, “Clients have different tolerance levels for publicity. Understanding their appetite or aversion regarding media coverage is critical when advising them.” She adds, “As social media continues to be popular, a smart lawyer will give thought to how it could publicize a case and have those conversations with a client.”
“Filing a lawsuit results in the loss of control, which is a major factor for clients deciding whether it’s worth it to engage in litigation. Some clients are fine with publicity—and in some circumstances seek it out—but litigation can often have unpredictable effects on a client’s image,” Nicole said.
Lastly she says, “Sometimes when you sue, you bring more attention to the issue than there otherwise would be on it.”
