Why You Should Attend

Preserving the attorney-client privilege during internal investigations is a tricky minefield for attorneys at various levels of experience.  In fact, the skill of distinguishing privileged communications from unprotected “business” discussions continues to challenge even experienced legal professionals as well as their clients. 

To answer the tough questions on ethics, privilege, and government regulation, PLI and Program Chair Winston Paes have brought together an exceptional panel of experts representing all sides of an investigation. 

Our faculty will use engaging hypotheticals and visual presentations to discuss real-world circumstances and cases.  Participants will come away from this program with an even sharper understanding of how to the balance an attorneys’ obligation to prevent disclosure of otherwise protected information while also advancing the clients’ best interests before federal regulatory offices where cooperation is often key.
