This Article will focus on how lawyers in countries with a tradition of bank secrecy have played a part in maintaining their clients' anonymity vis-à-vis bankers. For comparative purposes the Article will also comment on the banker's interest in knowing his or her customer's identity in a tax context, particularly when the customer claims the benefits of income tax treaties. My modest purpose is to help us all to be more aware of the divergent ethical implications of bank account anonymity.
