Mayer Brown Legal Update
Over the summer, the Law Society of England and Wales has been consulting with regard to issuing new guidance on legal professional privilege ("LPP") and has issued a draft practice note entitled "Legal Professional Privilege: The Law Society Guidance on its Usage". This consultation follows in the wake of
