The Struggle to Maintain the Attorney-Client Privilege for In-House Insurance Counsel
Is the written memorandum prepared by in-house counsel protected from disclosure by any applicable privilege or doctrine?
When an in-house attorney at an insurance company is asked to analyze complex insurance coverage scenarios and their reinsurance implications by a senior business executive, is the written memorandum prepared by in-house counsel protected from disclosure by any applicable privilege or doctrine? That was the question before a federal magistrate judge in ruling on whether an insurer’s withholding of the in-house counsel’s memo from production was justified.
