A corporation’s privilege protection can often be misunderstood or unintentionally damaged.  Educating and training the company’s Board and management is key to creating a culture that maintains the protections of the attorney-client privilege and work product doctrine. 

Join Practical Law for a free 75-minute webinar in which Thomas Spahn, a partner with McGuireWoods LLP and author of “The Attorney Client Privilege and The Work Product Doctrine: A Practitioner’s Guide” explains how to provide practical guidance to management on the creation and maintenance of the attorney-client privilege and work product protection.

In this program, attendees will: 

  • Learn training techniques to effectively explain the attorney-client privilege and work product protection to non-lawyers.
  • Obtain practical guidance on creating a corporate atmosphere conducive to maintaining the privilege.
  • Discover special considerations when addressing the Board of Directors.
  • Explore real-life examples where attorney-client privilege was waived, the effect this had on the situation and how waiver could have been prevented.
