The legal blog Above the Law is reporting that associates at WilmerHale have been warned not to talk to them. Tipsters have reported that a memo was sent out that left associates with the impression that their jobs would be at stake if they leaked any information to the blog. No copy of this memo has surfaced yet, but Above the Law has an open thread on the subject. I’d like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that, like ATL, all tips you send us are completely anonymous. It goes without saying that every attorney has an ethical obligation to employers and clients alike to keep certain things confidential. Everything else should be fair game.
