Arroyo, 2019 WL 4122102 (2019), recently addressed the meaning of “in the rendition of legal services” as it applies to corporate counsel’s attempts to shield employee statements with attorney-client privilege. As iterated by the Florida Supreme Court, the attorney-client privilege “protects only those disclosures necessary to obtain informed legal advice.” Genovese v. Provident Life & Accident Ins. Co., 74 So. 3d 1064, 1067 (Fla. 2011). While this privilege applies to corporations to promote full and frank conversations between corporations and their counsel, claims of privilege in the corporate context are subjected to a heightened level of scrutiny.  S.
