    Protected Thoughts? IRS Threatens Attorney Work-Product Doctrine


    Share This:

    Oct. 19, 2011 – The Internal Revenue Service has achieved some success persuading courts to limit the application of the attorney work-product doctrine, forcing disclosure of work product – including an attorney’s mental impressions – in certain situations.

    Read Miller’s article, “IRS Threatens Attorney Work-Product Doctrine,” in the October Wisconsin Lawyer™ magazine.
