    Information may also be protected from discovery under U.S. law by virtue of the attorney-client privilege,see In re Application of Chevron Corp., 2010 WL 5437234 (D. Mass. 2010), the work product doctrine,see United Kingdom v. U.S., 238 F.3d 1312 (11th Cir. 2001), or other recognized mechanisms. Protection from discovery by privilege or protection may, however, be waived.SeeIn re Chevron Corp., 633 F.3d 153 (3d Cir. 2011). Significantly, there is no requirement that materials sought in the U.S. be discoverable in the foreign country where it is sought to be used for it to be discoverable here pursuant to section 1782.
