Can The Attorney Client Privilege Be Asserted If The Putative Attorney Was Not Properly Admitted?

Here is a great law school hypo. Employer hires attorney. The attorney is later fired. Can his former employer assert attorney-client privilege? This is actually not a law school hypo. Rather, this issue is pending in the Southern District of New York. A New York Law Journal article about this case dated April 8, 2010 is available here. (registration required).

Law review commentary on this interesting topic would be most welcome.
