Work Product Protection
The work product protection or privilege is not designed to protect the client. Rather, it is an attorney’s independent assertion of his work product privilege. It stands on a very different footing because the attorney’s privilege is based on the attorney’s interest in protecting his opinions and thought processes from disclosure. This is a protection that benefits all of the attorney’s clients because it accords the attorney a measure of privacy within which he can candidly compose his thoughts and the fraud exception does not apply.
