Issues involving conflicts and privilege and the attendant issues of tax penalties and potential malpractice exposure are common in any tax practice but now they are compounded by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. When a contact tracer comes to call, what professional ethics rules govern release of the information about who a lawyer has met with, or when a client or confidential source has tested positive for the virus?
