22.09.2010 Legal professional privilege - issues for lawyers and clients Legal professional privilege is a perennial issue for lawyers and their clients. This update is a reminder of the key rules which apply in the United Kingdom, with a particular focus on the role of in-house counsel and the steps that clients can take to minimise any potential issues.
It comprises both legal advice privilege and litigation privilege. It is an essential protection for clients, who need to be free to obtain full and frank legal advice and to bring or defend legal proceedings, without the fear that communications with their lawyers could be disclosable to third parties or the court. Without the protection which privilege confers, a client may not be completely open with its lawyers (which will have a knock-on effect on the quality of legal advice it receives), or may be less thorough in its preparation for trial.
