Eleanor Davison gives an interview to LexisPSL
Eleanor Davison gives an interview to LexisPSL, on the invocation of the legal professional privilege and the Serious Fraud Office.
A Corporate Crime analysis has been made on the basis of a case involving the Director of the Serious Fraud Office. It outlines the extent to which legal privilege can be invoked when withholding documents from public bodies.
Eleanor examines the decision of the Divisional Court and appreciates that it is ‘helpful from an advisory perspective for corporate crime lawyers, in that it gives considerable insight into the process that is followed by the SFO in dealing with material which may fall within the protections of LPP’.
