Attorney-Client Privilege Answer Book (2018 Edition)
In this newly updated guide to understanding the attorney-client privilege, Christopher Ruhland examines the boundaries of the privilege in a Q&A format. The book provides answers to questions that attorneys grapple with on a regular basis as to what is, or is not, covered by the privilege, and how the privilege is protected and lost.
The 2018 version of Attorney-Client Privilege Answer Book adds new material throughout the book, including citations to over forty new cases, on topics such as Rule 502(d) orders, potential waiver of the privilege through the assertion of litigation defenses, and whether intra-client communications are privileged. Other additions include new questions regarding the functional equivalent doctrine and what happens when employees use their employers’ email systems to communicate with their personal attorneys.
