Wells Fargo & Co. accidentally released confidential information on tens of thousands of the bank’s wealth-advisory clients, the latest misstep for the firm as it works to recover from last year’s cross-selling scandal.

The disclosure came to light after Aaron Zeisler, an attorney at Zeisler PLLC in New York representing Gary Sinderbrand, a former employee of Wells Fargo Advisors LLC, informed a Wells Fargo lawyer.
