Speaking Engagement

Many in-house practitioners work in multi-national corporations. Oftentimes, their assigned business units operate across national boundaries, with legal advice delivered to business heads/executives in various parts of the world. Many jurisdictions do not recognize the attorney-client privilege, making legal advice rendered subject to disclosure/discovery. Our panel will explore the basis for the attorney-client privilege, where it does/does not exist, and how to intermarry the lack of attorney-client privilege with the way a practitioner delivers advice of counsel in an international business environment and manages litigation/discovery issues that arise.
