PRACTICE: For your eyes only

17 February 2017  

Andrew Beck and Gwendoline Davies return to update the law and practice of legal advice privilege and litigation privilege

In January 2016 we reviewed the law of legal advice privilege and the key cases which had hit the legal headlines in the preceding year (‘Practice makes privileged’, CLJ65, January/February 2016, p19). Privilege has continued to dominate as a hot topic for commercial litigators and so we return to provide an update and practical advice.
