The Attorney-Client Privilege: What In-House Lawyers and Their...

Join us for The Attorney Client Privelege Webinar in which we will discuss the attorney-client privilege specifically as it relates to in-house lawyers and their clients. We will examine the most common myths about the in-house attorney-client privilege as well as best practices for maintaining the privilege in challenging situations.

Topics Include:

  • When and why do courts deny privilege claims because the lawyer was in-house rather than outside counsel?
  • Which corporate employees can have privileged conversations with in-house counsel, and which ones can impede privilege claims?
  • What kinds of communications between in-house lawyers and their clients are protected by the privilege, and how can in-house lawyers manage the risk that their communications will be disclosed in litigation?
