Miguel Pozo, a member in the firm's Commercial Litigation Department, presented at the 2017 Corporate Counsel, "Cross-Border: Attorney-Client Privilege Issues" on Friday 24, 2017. We live in an increasingly interconnected world, where many in-house counsel represent multi-national corporations on legal matters that involve multiple cross-border jurisdictions. Given that not all legal systems across the globe recognize attorney-client privilege, inhouse counsel must navigate the potential lack of protection over communications with their clients in certain territories. This module explores several hypotheticals in which the question regarding whether or not attorney-client privilege would apply in a given situation is examined along with strategies counsel can employ to ensure communications are protected from disclosure.
