Attorney-Client Privilege and Ethical Issues for In-House Counsel


Join Gavin Skok and Rachel Schaefer for an important discussion about the unique challenges faced by in-house counsel attempting to protect the attorney-client privilege and work product immunity, despite judicial skepticism and counsel’s often dual roles as attorney and business advisors.  Discussion topics will include:

  • An overview of privileges and immunities potentially available to in-house counsel
  • Danger points where those privileges can be waived or lost
  • Practical advice on how to maintain those privileges
  • Real-life examples illustrating how courts draw privilege lines
  • Preserving privilege in mergers and acquisitions
