Neither clients nor attorneys want to be on the wrong side of a privilege challenge--litigating these disagreements is not only costly but risky. Yet, the scope of the attorney-client privilege in internal investigations, including responding to government requests for information, continue to be among of the most hotly contested subjects in the legal field. Thus, PLI is proud to bring together this panel of experts to answer the tough questions on ethics, privilege, and government regulation while providing perspectives from 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 balance an attorneys’ obligation to prevent disclosure of otherwise protected information while also advancing the clients’ best interests before regulatory bodies where cooperation is often key.
