Privilege Pitfalls - Inadvertent Waivers & ‘Cherry Picking’ Explained
When does referring to a document waive privilege?
Privilege in respect of legal advice and documents is an important safeguard in litigation. Several recent cases have looked at privilege in the context of references to privileged documents in pleadings, statements and letters.
The dividing line between the waiving of privilege and maintaining it is a thin one. It is vital to keep the client’s privilege intact and all solicitors must understand how to achieve that and the consequences of referring to privileged documents.
