Event Information

Companies no longer solely seek legal advice from their in-house counsel – they want practical business solutions.

With this in mind, more businesses are placing a higher emphasis on in-house counsel serving in both legal and business roles. They are expected to not only take consideration of the law, but have an understanding of business operations, infrastructure, history, ethics and goals.

Blending of roles by in-house counsel can raise challenges from outside parties over attorney-client privilege and work product doctrine.

Partner Anna Cook will be speaking alongside fellow presenters Charles Price and Tara Ward, at this IADC webinar to explore the legal landscape related to internal legal communications and provide strategies to overcome future challenges.

Key takeaways:

  • Understanding of the legal and practical impact that blended roles have on the attorney-client privilege
  • Understanding the threat-level of internal communications when it comes to future potential challenges
  • Learning strategies to increase the likelihood that privilege or work product designations will be upheld if challenged
