Process and Procedures of Attorney Client Privilege

Gain an understanding of the method that implicates the attorney client privilege.

The attorney-client privilege is one of the most venerated legal concepts in our system of law. With the confluence of the prolific use of electronic communications that can be readily discovered and the presence of high profile investigations concerning lawyers and their clients' business dealings, seizure of attorney-client privileged documents has come into sharper focus. There are tested processes and protocols in place to ensure that the privilege is properly protected from government viewing this material. This topic helps attorneys to understand the various constitutional, statutory and regulatory structures that are in place that restrict the government from seizing and viewing attorney-client privileged documents. This material also instructs defense attorneys on key legal concepts used to test and challenge the process if potential encroachments are detected or if actual encroachments are occurring. This informationa is critical for defense attorneys representing corporations and individuals, as well as in-house counsel that confront these issues, to ensure that they are alert to the important and time-sensitive arguments that are made to shield and protect the attorney-client privilege.
