Waiver of Solicitor-Client Privilege: How to Avoid Every Litigator's Nightmare
May 02, 2008
Co-authored by Christiaan A. Jordaan. Following a series of significant Supreme Court of Canada decisions within the last decade, the nature and scope of the protection afforded to solicitor-client privileged communications has been expanded in Canada. Nevertheless, many threats to privilege remain – especially as a result of modern electronic communications and data management practices. In this paper presented to the Advocates' Society's Spring Symposium 2008 – Trials and Tribulations: The Practical Advocate, the authors provide some guidance on navigating the contemporary litigation landscape successfully.
