Description

Taught by Tom Spahn of McGuireWoods LLP, an experienced commercial litigator, advisor, and prolific speaker on ethics and privilege issues, this webcast addresses the societal benefits and costs of the privilege, as well as the privilege's applicability to communications with prospective clients, individual clients, government clients, and joint clients. The program will also cover the fiduciary exception and communications with the client’s agent or consultant and the lawyer’s agent or consultant. Additional topics include: • the privilege's applicability in a corporate context • unprotected background information • the critical "legal advice" element • distinguishing between business and legal advice • the different rules governing client-to-lawyer and lawyer-to-client communications • the crime-fraud exception • the effect of third parties' presence on the privilege • the joint defense/common interest doctrine • waiver issues
