Misunderstanding the nature of Propend privilege

Published on 01 Oct 09 by "TAXATION IN AUSTRALIA" JOURNAL ARTICLE

Propend privilege protects the selection and copying of documents which are provided for the dominant purpose of obtaining legal advice or for use in legal proceedings. That privilege does not have regard to the nature of the information contained in the copy documents, and waiver of that privilege can occur only if there is disclosure of the reason why a particular document was selected by the client for copying and provision to the lawyer.
