NYSBA | Ethics Opinion 1142

***

Where a lawyer keeps client files received in electronic form in that form and a former client requests a copy of the file in paper form, the lawyer must take reasonable measures to deliver the electronic documents in a form in which the client can access them.  The lawyer may charge the client the reasonable fees and expenses incurred in printing out and delivering a paper copy.
