Attorneys are obliged by law to maintain independence. They concentrate unreservedly on solving their client’s problems and do not represent any interests that conflict with those of their clientele.
As a result of attorney confidentiality, all of their clients’ information is protected by attorney secrecy, which not only obliges attorneys to observe absolute discretion, but also gives them the right to refuse to provide information to government officials and third parties.
The confidential relationship existing between attorney and client is the ideal basis for optimal counselling and representation of the client.
Independence, attorney secrecy and confidentiality provide the guarantee that clients can trust unreservedly in their attorney.
