My colleagues Susan Berson, Karen Lovitch, and I hosted a webinar on December 16, 2014 entitled “Practical Tips for Health Care and Life Sciences Companies to Protect the Attorney-Client Privilege.” A link to the recorded presentation can be found here.
In the webinar, we:
- Provided an overview of attorney-client privilege considerations particular to the health care and life sciences industries;
- Described recent case law addressing the contours of the attorney-client privilege;
- Explained how the privilege applies to communications with in-house counsel, outside counsel, and compliance professionals;
- Discussed common privilege issues, including those issues that may arise in internal investigations and corporate transactions; and
- Gave some practical tips for protecting the privilege.
