Recent Developments in the Law of Privilege

The recent increase in regulatory scrutiny and civil litigation requires more than ever that your company be scrupulous about taking proper precautions to protect sensitive documents and internal investigations from public disclosure.

Attend our seminar and hear our lawyers discuss recent developments in the law of solicitor-client privilege and the particular challenges that face corporate counsel who are often required to wear multiple hats within their organizations.

Topics will include:
  • What you need to do to maximize the protection from disclosure afforded by solicitor-client privilege
  • How to ensure that internal investigations are protected by solicitor-client privilege
  • What you need to do to avoid a waiver of solicitor-client privilege
  • Recent case law that may require taxpayers to waive solicitor-client privilege in certain kinds of tax appeals
