Navigating the Murky waters of Legal Privilege in Construction Disputes: Practical Guidance on Communications Between Clients, Counsel, and Experts
U.S. privilege doctrines recognize that counsel needs to convey critical information to their client without the risk that those communications will be subject to disclosure later on. Given the number of players commonly involved in construction disputes – clients, in-house counsel, outside counsel, consultants, testifying experts, etc. – maintaining privilege frequently poses a trap for the unwary. Our panelists will work through best practices to preserve privilege among clients and experts, how those approaches may vary from jurisdiction and forum, and how best to mitigate the risk of potential privilege waivers.
