THE CRIME-FRAUD EXCEPTION (CFE) – HOW CAN AN ALLEGATION OF WRONGDOING OVERRIDE LEGAL PROFESSIONAL PRIVILEGE (LPP)?

A blog post from Corker Bining on 5 July posed this question and is concerned with the so-called ‘crime-fraud exception’ (CFE), an example of where LPP is sidestepped by establishing that it never existed in the first place. It says that a recent High Court case is an excellent primer on CFE, not least because it highlights areas in which it may currently be underutilised or misunderstood.
