Legal Jargon Buster - What is Professional Privilege?
Solicitors are under a duty to keep the affairs of their clients confidential, and the circumstances in which they are able to disclose client communications are strictly limited. However, there are certain times when disclosure of information can be made to the National Crime Agency.
Solicitors also have a duty of full disclosure to their clients. However, certain sections of the Proceeds of Crime Agency prohibit disclosure of information in circumstances where it would prejudice an existing or proposed investigation.
