(CNN)A legal adviser to Rudy Giuliani said he hopes former President Donald Trump will join in a court fight to attempt to block federal prosecutors from accessing seized material Giuliani believes is protected by attorney-client privilege.

Lawyer Alan Dershowitz, who is not formally representing Giuliani but acting in an advisory capacity, said the former New York City mayor will likely file a court challenge and wants his former clients to also seek to prevent prosecutors from examining the material.

Costello said shortly after the warrants were served on his client that the devices are "replete with the material covered by the attorney-client privilege and other constitutional privileges. "

Trump's other former attorney Michael Cohen went to court in 2018 to fight over privilege issues after prosecutors raided his home, office and hotel room.

After a federal judge denied that request, Cohen's attorneys successfully sought the appointment of a "special master," a court-appointed independent authority to review the material and determine which documents were privileged.
