Lawyers’ outsourcing of client data may jeopardize attorney-client privilege

Some lawyers are concerned that if they outsource legal work to non-U.S. firms, they could be jeopardizing the attorney-client privilege because of the U.S. Government’s position that it is free to monitor communications with foreigners.  See this Legal Times article about a lawyer suing for a ruling on that point.  (Pedro Ruz Gutierrez, Law Firm Files Suit to Bar Outsourcing of Client Data [sic], Legal Times, May 27, 2008)
