Update on Law of Privilege in Commercial Litigation

May 9, 2024 - 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
While solicitor-client privilege dates back to the 16th century, the law regarding privilege continues to evolve. This seminar will provide an update on current case law from across the country that deals with the law of privilege and will offer practical advice on how to protect privilege claims.

A brief Q&A session will follow the presentation.

  • Update on case law dealing with solicitor-client privilege

  • Internal investigations and how to structure them to preserve claims of privilege

  • Update on common-interest privilege

  • Third parties in solicitor-client communications (such as crisis communication consultants, accountants, actuaries) and how their involvement may result in a waiver of privilege
