Professional privilege and without prejudice communications

Daniel Breier – Director – Insurance litigation

Maintaining legal professional privilege over communications and reports following an incident is as important as gathering all relevant information. Questions frequently arise as to whether legal professional privilege can properly be asserted over reports drafted by in-house lawyers. In addition, recent court decisions have limited the protection ordinarily afforded to “without prejudice” communications made in a genuine attempt to resolve a dispute between parties.
