Keith Nichols quoted in North Carolina Lawyers Weekly article North Carolina Lawyers Weekly 6/16/2016

Keith Nichols was quoted extensively in the North Carolina Lawyers Weekly article, "Common business interest doesn’t create attorney-client privilege," published June 16, 2016 and written by David Donovan. 

Keith, representing Friday Investments, said "I think from here on out, at the outset of cases, attorneys are going to have to analyze what the nature of the business relationship is and what the potential legal relationship is between the parties before figuring out whether or not information is going to be privileged, or how careful they’re going to have to be in their dealing."
