The law of legal professional privilege is of immense importance to clients, in-house counsel and external lawyers. This is the first publication which undertakes a critical evaluation of existing rules of legal professional privilege both in Singapore and across Commonwealth jurisdictions. It draws on applicable legislation, case law and academic commentary, and seeks to provide the reader with a sound doctrinal and analytical framework with which to approach the different aspects of this subject, as well as practical advice on how to assert and defend claims of privilege.
