The attorney-client privilege is one of the cornerstones of the legal profession. Despite the privilege’s sacrosanct nature, there are exceptions to the well-established rule that the communications between an attorney and his client are confidential. For example, under certain circumstances (pre-representation disclosures and waivers are needed), an attorney who represents multiple clients in the same matter can share communications among those involved in the joint representation, without waiving the attorney-client privilege as to those who are not part of the joint representation (i.e., the rest of the world). But what happens when infighting arises among those who were parties to the joint representation?
