Excerpt from "Privilege has its limits, lawyers are discovering in post-Enron world", by Beppi Crosariol:

Fred Myers quoted: 

"There are more and more cases of people trying, and successfully, to obtain evidence from corporate counsel that might previously have been thought to be protected by privilege," says Fred Myers, a partner at Goodmans LLP in Toronto who specializes in insolvency litigation.

"There's a concern that if in-house counsel are not very careful to protect the privilege attaching to their legal advice to executives, then they can be increasingly finding that advice coming under attack by adversaries of the corporation."
