Event Synopsis:

Corporate internal investigations can be challenging for companies and even for an experienced lawyer. A solid plan must be developed to uphold attorney-client privilege to protect both the attorneys and their clients from being forced to disclose confidential communications between them during the course of the investigation.

The Knowledge Group is assembling a panel of thought leaders to help companies understand the fundamentals and the recent developments in attorney-client privilege and internal investigations. They will also discuss best practices to lessen investigative risk and manage internal investigations while upholding attorney-client privilege. The speakers will share their expert opinions in a two-hour live webcast.
