The Keys to Confidentiality –

Obtaining Legally Protected Information in Discovery

This presentation will explore how to navigate the procedural hurdles to acquiring various types of records that an attorney might want to obtain as part of a lawsuit but which are subject to various state and federal privacy laws, such as medical and mental health treatment records. We will discuss requirements for patient consent, and what to do in situations where consent is not readily obtainable. We will also discuss the ongoing privacy obligations imposed on the recipient of confidential records under applicable law.
