Navigating through issues of privilege and work product can be particularly complicated for in-house counsel. You must identify a corporate “client,” and specifically those individuals who can communicate on its behalf. Where in-house attorneys have both legal and business responsibilities, the role played can affect whether or not communications are protected by privilege. The program will cover circumstances like these, unique to the analysis of privilege and work product for in-house counsel, and provide practical suggestions for protecting information under the attorney-client communications privilege and the work product doctrine.

- – Identify types of communications involving in-house counsel that may or may not be privileged
