Taken from the briefing Attorney-Client Privilege: What In-House Lawyers Need to Know recorded June, 2017 in New York.

The attorney-client privilege is the oldest privilege in the law, and it also may be the most misunderstood. Common myths abound, especially regarding in-house counsel and the extent to which communications between them and their clients are or can be privileged. Courts evaluating privilege claims often treat in-house and outside counsel differently, in ways that lawyers and clients might not understand – until it is too late. This One-Hour Briefing will cover three of the most common myths about the in-house attorney-client privilege and will address ways to deal with increasing judicial scrutiny of in-house privilege claims.

Lecture Topics  [01:04:18]

Expert faculty will discuss:

  • When and why courts deny privilege claims because the lawyer was in-house rather than outside counsel
  • Which corporate employees can have privileged conversations with in-house counsel, and which ones can impede privilege claims
  • What kinds of communications between in-house lawyers and their clients are protected by the privilege

The speaker is Christopher S. Ruhland, partner at Dechert LLP and author of PLI’s Attorney-Client Privilege Answer Book.
