      Not if you are part of the team.

      On the other hand, if privileged communications are shared with other
      third parties, the privilege generally evaporates, even if inadvertent. Those
      who wish to assert a privilege have an affirmative obligation to protect it.

      For example, case law is clear that a privileged communication recovered
      from the trash is fair game, unless it was shredded or torn into small
      pieces.

      Now here is a question for you. Let's say that you heard a conversation
      between the attorney and the attorney's client, or you were copied an email
      between the attorney and the attorney's client. I know that this often
      happens. Can you be compelled to turn over that communication to opposing
      counsel?
