Disclosures and Disclaimer
Vista is an ancillary business of Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease LLP (the “Firm”). The Firm is the sole owner of Vista, however, Vista is not a law firm and does not provide legal advice or legal services.
The services provided by Vista are not being provided by the Firm. Accordingly, but subject to the important exception set forth in the paragraph below, the protections of the client-lawyer relationship, including those that prevent the disclosure of communications, do not exist with respect to the services provided by Vista to its customers. Absent a client-lawyer relationship, the attorney-client privilege and other protections inherent in that relationship do not exist.
Because Vista is not a law firm, the protections of the client-lawyer relationship do not exist with respect to the relationship between Vista and its customers. For that reason, communications between the Firm and Vista (including those involving representatives of Vista’s customers) may be protected by the attorney-client privilege if, and only if, (i) the customer has retained both the Firm and Vista, and (ii) the customer and/or the Firm are utilizing the services of Vista to provide certain information that the Firm needs in order to render privileged advice to the customer, or where Vista needs to know the Firm’s advice to the customer in order to assist customer in implementing it.
Any customer of Vista is not required to retain the Firm for legal services as a condition of retaining Vista. Customers of Vista are free to retain counsel of their own choosing.
Customers of the Firm are not required to retain Vista for any purpose as a condition of retaining the Firm for legal services.
Vista’s customers may also be subject to a separate manually or digitally-executed agreement for the use of services made available by Vista. Those additional terms become part of the customer’s agreement with Vista.
