Court Of Chancery Upholds Privilege To Say I Consulted

Posted In Discovery

In re Quest Software Inc. Shareholders Litigation, C.A. 7357-VCG (July 3, 2013)

Almost every case seems to involve the issue of when asserting that the defendant board had legal advice constitutes a waiver of the attorney-client privilege.
