Privilege Upheld

The Utah Supreme Court held that communications with a client representative are protected by the attorney-client privilege, even if the client is an individual rather than a corporation or other business entity. The client representative in the case before the court was the clients' daughter, who had been an attorney but was not counsel in the case. The court concluded that the communications were protected where the client representative has the authority to obtain legal services or is authorized by the client to communicate with the attorney.
