What Happens In-House Stays In-House: Maintaining Attorney-Client Privilege in the Corporate Setting

Slides | Webinar

Even during a pandemic, work continues for CEFLI Members – perhaps remotely – and the need to maintain confidentiality of privileged communications has never been greater.

Please join CEFLI as it welcomes Ted Holt, Shareholder, and Ashlee Riopka Elrod, Associate, of CEFLI Affiliate Member Maynard Cooper & Gale as they provide an overview of the attorney-client privilege and offer a brief survey of how courts apply the privilege to communications involving in-house counsel.  The webinar will also provide the audience with practical guidance for protecting privileged and confidential communications.

The presentation is appropriate not only for in-house counsel, but anyone who interacts with in-house counsel, including compliance professionals.

The webinar will include hypotheticals involving life insurance compliance personnel and will explore the impact of increased remote working arrangements on maintaining privileged communications.
