Persons examining the files and records of the law practice of an affected attorney pursuant to ORS 9.705 (Definitions for ORS 9) to 9.757 (Retention of client materials) shall preserve the confidentiality of the information relating to the affected attorney’s representation of a client and shall make disclosure only to the extent necessary to carry out the purposes of ORS 9.705 (Definitions for ORS 9) to 9.757 (Retention of client materials).
