Is there any case law supporting a plaintiff's claim for privileged communications?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Concord Pacific Acquisitions Inc. v. Oei, 2016 BCSC 2028 (CanLII):

Finally, I have already alluded to the primacy and protection that solicitor/client communications are afforded. One aspect of that protection is that such communications, and the privilege that attaches to them, are construed broadly; see Belabel v. Air India, [1988] 2 All E.R. CA at 254. A broad interpretation supports the plaintiff's claim for privilege.
