Abstract: An effective legal system requires that confidentiality between client and attorney be protected. Only if the law recognises the confidential nature of the information passing between client and attorney will the client be willing to confide in the attorney and the attorney be able to represent the client’s interests effectively. However, there are major differences between civil law and common law concepts in this respect. In the following discussion, Swiss attorney secrecy serves as an example of the civil law system, whereas English legal professional privilege (LPP) and the US attorney–client privilege (ACP) represent the common law tradition of attorney-related confidentiality.
