Privilege in Insurance Disputes: "Shielding Privileged Information in the Midst of a Sword Fight"

By Henrik Valdorf-Hansen and Anne Buhl Bjelke

Published by International Bar Association

Under Danish law, privilege (the right to refuse disclosure of confidential information in a litigation or arbitration) is closely connected to the duty to keep information confidential. A number of professions, such as medical practitioners, lawyers (in Danish, advokater) and insurance companies are under a duty to keep information confidential, but not all professions enjoy the privilege of refusing to disclose confidential information in court or arbitration proceedings.
