Our duties to our current and former clients require that we observe certain formalities before agreeing to represent anyone in a new matter. Before undertaking a new matter, our duties to current and former clients require us to determine whether there is any actual or potential conflict of interest that would preclude us from accepting the new matter. No attorney-client relationship can or will be established between you and GBA until GBA has determined that no conflict of interest exists between you and any of its current and former clients. Prior to the establishment of a formal attorney-client relationship, you should not send or disclose any confidential information to anyone at GBA by letter, fax, telephone, or email as any information received from you by GBA prior to that time will not be considered confidential or privileged and will not be protected from disclosure.
