Can action be taken against me for asserting LPP? Where a claim to LPP is properly made, no action can be taken against you for asserting it; and no action can be taken against your client for refusing to grant any waiver sought by law enforcement agencies or regulators. However, if you assert LPP you know to have been advanced in bad faith, you may be exposed to liability for conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.
