Appeal Court on privilege

The Court of Appeal overturned a High Court ruling that mining company Eurasian Natural Resources Corporation (ENRC) had to hand over to the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) documents prepared by its lawyers as part of its inquiry into claims of wrongdoing made by a whistleblower. In SFO v ENRC [2018] EWCA Civ 2006, the court upheld ENRC’s claim that most of the documents sought were covered by legal privilege.
