Preserving the attorney-client privilege during internal investigations is a tricky minefield for attorneys at various levels of experience. In fact, distinguishing privileged communications from unprotected “business” discussions continue to be among of the most hotly contested subjects in the legal field. PLI is proud to once again bring together an exceptional panel of experts to answer the tough questions on ethics, privilege, and government regulation while providing perspectives from all sides of an investigation.
