Federal law requires that certain attorneys and other providers of personal financial services inform their clients and certain others of their policies regarding privacy of information. Attorneys have always been bound by state laws and rules of practice that govern the confidentiality of communications between attorneys and clients, which are generally more stringent than the federal legislation.
