Why address legal privilege now?
“It is critical that practitioners understand the implications of the High Court’s decision in Glencore v The Commissioner of Taxation to be able to advise their clients moving forward and, more generally, ensure that their understanding of the fundamental principles underpinning LPP and their practical application is current" – Laura Hawes, Head of Dispute Resolution, Practical Law Australia

“Understanding definitively now that our client’s privilege will not operate as “sword”, in-house lawyers need to revisit their map of where the organisation’s privileged information is physically held and digitally stored, and by whom, and then reassess the security measures that protect that information” – Tyrilly Csillag, Head of In-House, Practical Law Australia
