The Fifth Edition has been updated and expanded to include new revisions of the attorney-client privilege and work product doctrine. Many of the previous chapters have been completely revised and others have gone through a comprehensive rewrite providing full coverage of all topics in one single-volume. This new edition is not merely a treatise on the subject; it is that and much more. Written for practitioners, it addresses the problems they face and offers solutions. Each chapter is written by authors with varied practices and offers the insights of the attorneys practicing in those areas. Attorney-client privilege continues to be a complex issue. The need for confidential communication in the corporate setting is as great, if not greater, than ever before. The latest edition focuses on:
