Litigation and Global Issues Forums: Privileged and Confidential - It's More Than Just a Header, Wednesday, February 21, 2018 | 12:00 - 2:00 PM
The in-house attorney’s dual role as a legal and a business advisor to a corporation creates multifaceted legal questions regarding the application of the attorney-client privilege to counsel often asked (a) to advise internal clients on non-legal issues, and (b) to conduct internal investigations on various issues for which the attorney-client privilege may not be applied consistently. What are the limitations and exceptions to attorney-client privilege? How do you protect attorney-client privilege during internal investigations? And, further complicating these questions, how does the attorney-client privilege differ from country to country?
The panel will walk through various case studies of attorney-client privilege scenarios and provide strategies for addressing these questions.
The forum is also available to attend by webcast
1.5 hours of Virginia Bar MCLE credit pending.
