SB 501 - This act states that when a trustee retains an attorney for any purpose then the trustee and the attorney shall be afforded all the protections granted under attorney-client privilege, and no exceptions to the privilege shall be allowed regardless of whether the attorney's services are used for the administration of a trust or otherwise. All other exceptions to attorney-client privilege recognized by law shall remain applicable.

This act is identical to provisions contained in HCS/HB 1231(2014) and HB 1427 (2014).
