A recent Delaware Court of Chancery decision confirmed the continued soundness of a long-standing exception to the attorney/client privilege when a beneficiary seeks communications with counsel for a trustee, based on the seminal decision of Riggs National Bank of Washington, D.C. v. Zimmer, 355 A.2d 709 (Del. Ch. 1976). The decision in J.P. Morgan Trust Company of Delaware v. Fisher, C.A. No. 12894-VCL (Del. Ch. Dec. 5, 2019), also provides an extremely useful acknowledgement that the list of six exceptions to the attorney/client privilege in Delaware Rule of Evidence 502(d) is not exhaustive, as there are other exceptions recognized by common law.
