Attorney-client privilege is important to the client, no matter who or what that client happens to be. However, I think it's deplorable that we afford corporations the same rights as being actual people, including attorney-client privilege, which they are clearly abusing. However, until we change the laws in that respect, they should be entitled to the same legal protections, to protect their interests.
I think that the attorney-client privilege is important to corporations in the same way that it is important to individuals. I am sure corporations feel that it is important to have that privilege with their attorneys because attorneys know the law much better than the average person and corporations need advice just like people do.
Yes. I believe client-attorney privilege is important to corporations, because of the litigation consequences of the alternative. Corporations hire lawyers to protect their interest exclusively. As do the criminal justice system when they employ prosecutors. That is the way the litigation systems works. There would be no advantage to hiring a lawyer if he, or she could expose incriminating information about their client to anyone they want.
Corporations rely on being able to disclose information that could be harmful to business if publicly released. This also gives corporations and their members the opportunity for a fair trial, should criminal charges ever be filed. In order to defend their clients, they must be able to access important details, even those that may be incriminating.
It should be safe to say that client-attorney privilege is very important to corporations in some ways that are similar to anyone else who consider it important. It maybe because people need to talk with there lawyers without having to be concerned with anyone trying to manipulate the corporation or the attorney.
The attorney-privilege is that the backbone of the legal community. It encourages the consumer to be open and honest together with the professional without worrying that others are going to be ready to pry into those conversations. Also, being totally knowledgeable by the consumer allows the professional to supply the simplest recommendation. This is very important to corporations.
The client-attorney privilege is not important to corporations. Corporations hide behind their over-flowing amount of wealth and will do whatever it takes to keep their corporation in the clear. They are out for nothing but the profits and willing to do whatever they can for it. I think the client-attorney privilege does not mean a lot to them.
