Attorney-Client Privilege for In-House Counsel: Avoiding the Traps

Attorney-Client Privilege for In-House Counsel: Avoiding the Traps
March 15, 2012

Saul Ewing will be hosting a CLE presentation designed to provide in-house counsel from corporate legal departments with an understanding of some of the nuances of the attorney-client privilege as it applies to communications with in-house attorneys.

Topics to be discussed at the seminar include:

  • Special rules for determining whether the privilege applies to communications with in-house counsel
  • The "dual hats" (business person and lawyer) that in-house attorneys often wear and how they can affect whether the privilege applies to particular communications
  • Avoiding traps that could result in waiving the in-house attorney-client privilege
  • Best practices for ensuring that privileged communications remain privileged

1.5 Pennsylvania CLE Ethics Credits will be offered. New Jersey CLE credit is pending approval.

The states of New Jersey and New York recognize Pennsylvania as an approved jurisdiction and will accept Pennsylvania accredited programs.

The event is taking place at Saul Ewing’s Newark office, One Riverfront Plaza, 1037 Raymond Blvd, Suite 1520, Newark, NJ from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
