Rule 6-601. Confidentiality

State Bar Programs / Part VI - Arbitration of Fee Disputes / CHAPTER 6 CONFIDENTIALITY / RECORD RETENTION

All records, documents, files, proceedings, and hearings pertaining to the arbitration of a fee dispute under this program are the property of the State Bar of Georgia and, except for the award itself, shall be deemed confidential and shall not be made public. 

A person who was not a party to the dispute shall not be allowed access to such materials unless all parties to the arbitration consent in writing or a court of competent jurisdiction orders such access. However, the Committee, its staff, or representative may reveal confidential information in those circumstances in which the Office of the General Counsel is authorized by Bar Rule 4-221(d) to do so.
