Cohen'therefore attorneys requested U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood at the hearing to let them examine the seized supplies to be certain that there wasn't any breach of attorney-client privilege, allowing clients to safeguard communications with their own lawyers. Wood said the court would reconvene in the afternoon to discuss how to release transcripts of those discussions that redacted the names of people described as "innocent individuals".
Cohen worked as a high-level executive in the Trump Organization for almost a decade.
Then there's even more shade, on Cohen's relationship with the law firm Squire Patton Boggs (referred to as "Law Firm 1"), which had hired Cohen as part of a "strategic alliance" past year.
They also downplayed the scope of potential privilege, saying they had before Monday secretly searched multiple email accounts belonging to Cohen, and which they said indicated that Cohen "is in fact performing little to no legal work".
McKay said Trump's ability to invoke the privilege is "no different" from anyone else's.
The 22-page filing states that the recent searches are the result of a "months-long investigation into Cohen, and seek evidence of crimes, many of which have nothing to do with his work as an attorney, but rather relate to Cohen's own business dealings".
However, on April 9, federal agents executed search warrants against Cohen as part of an ongoing criminal investigation - leading to the request to put the civil case brought by Daniels on hold.

One of Trump's attorneys, Joanna Hendon, argued in court on Friday for access to the materials, insisting that the president's legal team needs assurance that the matter involving Cohen is handled "scrupulously".
President Donald Trump is apparently more unnerved by the rapidly developing criminal case surrounding his personal lawyer Michael Cohen than he is about Robert Mueller, the special counsel overseeing the Russian Federation probe.
Mr Cohen has been under criminal investigation for months, federal prosecutors disclosed in a filing in Manhattan federal court in Friday.
Cohen's attorneys say they want a chance to review documents seized in the raid on Monday and specify items they believe aren't relevant to the investigation.
President Donald Trump's personal attorney is trying to prevent the government from using materials it found in a search of his office and residence this week. In a footnote in its filing, the prosecutors expressed doubt that any communications between Trump and Cohen regarding a payoff to Daniels before the election would be covered under attorney-client privilege.
The source said Cohen recorded some calls he had with attorney Keith Davidson, who at the time represented both Daniels and McDougal.
President Trump's advisers have concluded that a wide-ranging corruption investigation into his personal lawyer poses a greater and more imminent threat to the president than even the special counsel's investigation, according to several people close to Mr. Trump. She asked the court to delay the proceedings so her team could be brought up to speed.
Cohen's Manhattan office was raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Monday.
