THE LAW SOCIETY has said it will make representations in advance of the Supreme Court review of legal professional privilege to ensure it remains solely for the legal profession.
President Linda Lee said the society will “ensure that the scope of LPP remains clear and certain, so that it remains an important safeguard for clients who seek and obtain legal advice”.
Last week, Accountancy Age broke the story that the Supreme Court agreed to hear the appeal by the Prudential against HM Revenue & Customs over whether its discussions with PwC should fall under privilege. The Court of Appeal ruled in 2010 that LPP does not apply to non-law professionals.
