International Bar Association 2020 Annual Conference

Speaking Engagement

As business transactions become increasingly global, so do government investigations and litigation disputes arising out of those transactions. Sophisticated counsel in today’s legal climate must be prepared to handle the implications of business agreements and activities that span numerous countries and subject the companies to multiple regulatory and legal regimes. This includes recognizing that countries have different rules governing the application of the attorney-client privilege and work product doctrine.

This program will provide a comprehensive review of the attorney-client privilege globally, with particular emphasis on its application to in-house counsel, while providing practical tips for maximizing protection for communications in countries that do not recognize the privilege as applied to in-house counsel. We will also discuss examples of different ethics regimes globally.
