Georgia Supreme Court agrees with recent ruling re intra-firm privilege
A few days ago I reported that a new decision from Massachusets recently held that confidential communications between law firm attorneys and a law firm's in-house counsel concerning a malpractice claim asserted by a current client of the firm are protected from disclosure to the client by the attorney-client privilege. Now comes news that the Georgia Supreme Court has issued an opinion reaching the same conclusion. The Legal Ethics Forum has the story and links here.
