Legal privilege is the cornerstone of the legal system, protecting communication between clients and in-house or external counsel. But as fundamental as it may be, in a world of ever increasing demands for transparency, it is under pressure. In today's climate, business partners, regulators, prosecutors and public interest groups alike are testing the boundaries of companies' reliance on legal privilege. The call by these entities to disclose documents often leads to privilege being increasingly challenged.
This can have a profound impact on communication with in-house and external counsel. Companies relying on legal privilege are well-advised to be mindful of its limits and to implement strategies to safeguard it.
In this Master Class, Eelco Meerdink and Martje Verhoeven - de Vries Lentsch will navigate the limits of legal privilege and develop practical strategies to safeguard it. Based on recent case law and practice, they will formulate key takeaways to protect legal privilege in a challenging and changing environment.
This Webinar Master Class will be held on Thursday, 16 September at our Amsterdam Office (Covid permitting) from 08:30 – 10:30 or Friday, 17 September via MS Teams from 08:30 – 10:00.
