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:

 •  Guidance for corporate counsel

 •  Perspectives on the attorney-client privilege and the work-product doctrine

 •  Confidentiality and its relationship to the attorney-client privilege

 •  Hidden dangers for the exceptions to the attorney-client privilege

 •  Defining fair game in the e-discovery era and how to protect your client

 •  Communications between attorneys and putative class members

 •  Communications between related corporations

 •  Federal courts' application of the work-product doctrine

 •  Protecting the attorney-client privilege during an internal investigation

 •  Contacting employees, former employees and related witnesses

 •  Discovery of the non-testifying in-house expert assigned to litigation

 •  Loss of attorney-client privilege through inadvertent disclosure of privilege documents

 •  The perils of selective waiver of privilege

 •  Application to communications between insureds and insurance carriers

 •  Immunity in patent litigation

 •  Confidentiality in the reinsurance arena

 •  The joint defense privilege

 •  International scope and applications

 •  Application in insurance coverage litigation

 •  Attorney-client privilege and corporate communications
