Lex Mundi has compiled a guide of what constitutes attorney-client across over 65 different jurisdictions. Differences in the law among both common law and civil law jurisdictions can be significant. Companies and their counsel should be aware of these differences and how they may affect legal proceedings. We will host a panel discussion comprising experts from both civil and common law jurisdictions to share their experiences.

1. Background – brief (5 mins each panelist):
1. Basic law of attorney-client privilege/professional confidentiality
2. Basic law of Litigation Privilege or corollary in civil law jurisdictions
3. Include whether in-house counsel are within the privilege/professional confidentiality?

2. May the government – either criminal prosecutors or other regulators – override these privileges/confidentiality/protections?

3. Are there “legally trained” personnel who work for companies, but who are not attorneys/members of a bar of court?

4. How do privilege issues arise?
1. How do privilege/professional confidentiality/Litigation Privilege issues arise in your jurisdiction?
1. Regarding communications occurring and work product created in your jurisdiction?
2. Regarding communications occurring and work product created outside your jurisdiction?
2. How do these issues arise in other jurisdictions regarding communications occurring and work product created in your jurisdiction?
1. For example, how do you address demands in proceedings outside your jurisdiction for attorney-client communications and work product?

5. Best Practices:
1. How can house counsel maximize the protections of privilege/confidentiality?
2. What are the primary misconceptions that company personnel have regarding how privilege works? (In the U.S., the common misconception on the part of non-lawyers is that merely copying a lawyer on an email will make it privileged.)

6. Other issues & Q&A
