Overview (Program Summary)

Co-sponsored with the Small Law Department Network 

In-house counsel today find themselves in a dynamic legal landscape, navigating the ever-evolving scenario surrounding the circuit split on attorney-client privilege for dual-purpose communications. These communications, encompassing both legal advice and non-legal information, present a unique challenge . Despite the recent dismissal by the U.S. Supreme Court of the case In re Grand Jury on January 23, 2023, which had aimed to provide a definitive resolution, there's a silver lining.  This program is designed to empower in-house counsel by offering insights into the optimal strategies for preserving privilege in the wake of the Supreme Court's decision including the intricate realm of privileged communications in multinational companies. While the court didn't explicitly expand the scope of attorney-client privilege as many had hoped, this presents an opportunity for counsel to proactively identify and implement the most effective methods to safeguard privilege in their specific situations.
