With the growth in number and size of corporate law departments, there is increased interest in determining the conditions and areas in which their communications' may be called for, and used, in litigation. As business becomes more complex, requiring adherence to legislation and regulation which allows small tolerance between the licit and illicit, or demanding close attention to administrative detail, the role of the lawyer is amplified. Concurrently, corporate counsel is engaged in areas where the distinction between business and legal considerations becomes decreasingly apparent.
