ELC 5.4 PRIVILEGES (a) Privilege Against Self-Incrimination. A lawyer’s duty to cooperate is subject to the lawyer’s privilege against self-incrimination, where applicable. (b) Attorney-Client Privilege. A lawyer may not assert the attorney-client privilege or other prohibitions on revealing client confidences or secrets as a basis for refusing to provide information during the course of an investigation, but information obtained during an investigation involving client confidences or secrets must be kept confidential to the extent possible under these rules unless the client otherwise consents. Nothing in these rules waives or requires waiver of any lawyer’s own privilege or other protection as a client against the disclosure of confidences or secrets. [Adopted effective October 1, 2002.]
