OPINION OF THE ADR SOCIETY OF THE CZECH CHAMBER ON THE OBLIGATION OF LAWYERS' CONFIDENTIALITY

We would like to draw the attention of lawyers - registered and unregistered mediators - to the opinion of the ADR ČAK section of 23 September 2021, which responds to the increasing breach of confidentiality:

1.  The activity of a registered and unregistered mediator is a so-called other activity of a lawyer within the meaning of Section 56 (2) of the Advocacy Act .

2. Lawyer - registered and unregistered mediator must therefore comply with the obligation  confidentiality,  the legitimate interests of clients in mediation take precedence over the lawyer's own interests.

3. Compliance with the duty of confidentiality is supervised by the Chamber, lawyers - registered i  unregistered  mediators fall  under her disciplinary authority.
