A lawyer violates the Code of Professional Responsibility by submitting a bill to an insurance company for representing its insureds which are often submitted to an outside auditory for review or which the lawyer is directed to submit directly to the auditor is such bill contains information which constitutes confidences or secrets of the client. Thus the lawyer has the responsibility to determine whether the bill contains any such information.
