Ask Atticus (An Advice Column for Young Lawyers)
When Sending an E-Mail Message to Opposing Counsel, May I Copy An Opposing Party?By Matthew A. Cordell
Dear Atticus,I am negotiating the terms of an agreement on behalf of a client, and the other party’s lawyer routinely copies her client and mine on her e-mail messages. Is this permitted? May I use the “Reply All” function to copy her client on my responses?
