Webber Wentzel contributed to the South African chapter of the latest edition of the popular Linklaters review of law and practice relating to legal professional privilege in 24 jurisdictions across Europe, the Americas and Asia-Pacific. The review has been fully revised and updated to take into account all the latest developments on this important topic.
The laws on legal professional privilege are a point of significant interest and divergence across the global legal landscape. Advice that is privileged in one country may not be protected in others. Differences in the application of legal professional privilege by courts and regulators across jurisdictions can lead to difficult decisions for organisations under investigation. Even within a jurisdiction, the scope and application of legal professional privilege may be the subject of debate amongst experts - and lead to dispute between parties.
