Thomas E. Peisch appeared for argument before the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court on the issue of whether a lawyer’s communications with a law firm’s risk management partner about a client matter are protected from disclosure to the client in a subsequent malpractice action by the attorney-client privilege. The argument garnered national attention, as no state supreme court has yet ruled on the issue. Erin K. Higgins and Andrew R. Dennington also were on brief. Click here to view Mr. Peisch's argument.
