• Documents partly privileged

    In some cases, only parts of a document are created for the dominant purpose of legal advice or litigation and will be covered by legal professional privilege – for example, minutes of a meeting.

    In this situation, the part you are claiming is privileged must satisfy the dominant purpose test. You must provide the complete document and redact (edit out) the part you claim is subject to privilege.
