The COVID-19 pandemic has brought new challenges for attorneys and the practice of law on a range of matters, from attorney-client confidentiality, communicating effectively while working remotely, and abiding by existing ethical responsibilities. The BBA’s Ethics Committee has issued an Advisory as a set of general guidelines to help Massachusetts attorneys navigate the new legal landscape.
