If a person other than the client is paying the fees, do i need to disclose the source of funds to the client? State is Florida.

Florida Model Code of Professional Conduct requires that you disclose the fees, but not the attorney client communication.

Rule 4-1.8 Conflict of Interest: Prohibited and Other Transactions
(f) Compensation by Third Party.
A lawyer shall not accept compensation for representing a client from one other than the client unless:
(1) the client consents after consultation;
(2) there is no interference with the lawyer's independence of professional judgment or with the client-lawyer relationship; and
(3) information relating to representation of a client is protected as required by rule 4-1.6.
