Description

Preparing a privilege log is often one of the most difficult and time-consuming tasks in commercial litigation, and is frequently delegated to junior attorneys. Yet, a deficient privilege log can result in severe consequences, including long-spanning discovery disputes or waiver of privilege. Accordingly, both young lawyers and more experienced litigators should understand both the requirements of a proper privilege log and how to assist senior members on the litigation team with preparing such logs.
