Alex Teu, Waiving the Attorney Client Privilege by Using Third Party File Transfer Providers – Part 1,

From the Article:

“An interesting question was raised by a Government law department seeking to use LeapFILE to transfer files: does a party lose its right to claim attorney client privilege over a communication otherwise privileged by using a service like LeapFILE to transmit that communication?

Referenced Authority: United States v. Councilman, 2005 WL 1907528 (1st Cir. Aug. 11, 2005),
