A corporation’s privilege protection can often be misunderstood or unintentionally damaged. Educating and training the company’s management and employees is key to creating a culture that maintains the protections of the attorney-client privilege and work product doctrine.
On September 20, 2013, Practical Law Company and Thomas Spahn of McGuireWoods LLP presented Preserving Privilege: Educating Management and Employees on Attorney-Client and Work Product Protection, a webinar on how to provide practical guidance to employees and management on the creation and maintenance of the attorney-client privilege and work product protection. Thomas Spahn discussed the ways in-house counsel and law firm attorneys can best create a corporate atmosphere conducive to maintaining the privilege.
Viewers of this webinar will:
- Learn training techniques to effectively explain the attorney-client privilege and work product protection to non-lawyers.
- Obtain practical guidance on creating a corporate atmosphere conducive to maintaining the privilege.
- Discover special considerations when addressing the Board of Directors.
- Explore real-life examples where attorney-client privilege was waived, the effect this had on the situation and how waiver could have been prevented.
All registrants of this webinar receive a ready to use PowerPoint presentation to easily inform the Board of Directors and corporate executives on their role in maintaining attorney-client privilege and work product protections.
