Defending the Privileged, Part II

24 February 2017
Mayer Brown Legal Update
In September 2016 we published the alert Defending the privileged: the Law Society defends the use of privilege in regulatory investigations. In that alert we detailed how regulators such as the FCA and the SFO had expressed frustration when firms and companies under investigation have sought to resist disclosing documents to them on the grounds of legal professional privilege. This is particularly relevant in relation to the disclosure of preliminary interviews with employees or former employees.
