The attorney-client privilege is the oldest and most sacrosanct privilege for confidential communications known to the common law. Nevertheless, recent trends in multiple jurisdictions have resulted in the “whittling down” of attorney-client privilege protections in the insurance litigation context, particularly in first-party insurance disputes. This presentation will provide a multijurisdictional review of such trends, as well as practical advice on how first-party insurers can best protect their attorney-client communications from discovery.

This webinar will provide attendees with:

  • A general overview of the attorney-client privilege
  • An understanding of recent trends in the discoverability of attorney-insurer communications in the first-party context
  • Practical advice on preserving attorney-client privilege protections in first-party insurance disputes

Who Should Attend:

This presentation is an advanced presentation intended for senior claims handlers and attorneys, but all first-party claims handlers who are interested in learning about the attorney-client privilege and how to preserve its protections are welcome.
