Reference: Joint Defense Privilege

Reference information:
WHAT IS A JOINT-DEFENSE AGREEMENT?

Joint-defense agreements serve as both contracts and notices to the client. In such contracts, the parties agree that they may exchange confidential information for their mutual benefit, and protect from disclosure the fact of the exchange and preserve privileges already attached to such information. In California, there is no formal joint-defense privilege. Rather, it is a judicial doctrine derived primarily from the attorney-client privilege.

And the label itself, "joint-defense,"is somewhat misleading, because the doctrine can be applied to non-litigation settings, such as transactional communications. That is why the joint-defense privilege is sometimes referred to as the "common-interest"privilege. Although joint-defense agreements can be formed orally, a joint-defense agreement should always be in writing and reviewed with and signed by the client. United States v. Stepney, 246 F. Supp. 2d 1069, 1080 (N.D.Cal. 2003).
