This article reports that the battle between the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England & Wales (ICAEW) and the Law Society over legal privilege took a new twist last week when the ICAEW handed the Home Office an opinion from a second top Brick Court silk. The Law Society, where there are understood to have been internal disagreements over how to respond, returned what one insider termed a "relatively benign" response. The ICAEWs lawyer Colin Passmore of Simmons & Simmons wrote to DLA late last year.
