Corporate Privileges and Confidential Information
is designed to assist inside and outside counsel in negotiating obstacles to maintaining corporate secrecy. All rights to privacy and confidentiality that a corporation may assert are gathered in this useful volume, which also includes advice on how to protect information otherwise required to be disclosed to a government agency.
This definitive treatment covers: attorney-client, work product and joint defense privileges; trade secrets; confidential submissions to federal and state authorities; financial privacy; and access to personnel files. It presents guidance on complex issues such as: the unique position of corporations in claiming privilege; application of the work product privilege to internal communications; the causes and scope of a waiver of the work product privilege; differentiating between inside counsel's business and legal functions to determine attorney-client privilege; insuring confidentiality of information supplied to a government agency; the dangers of intra-corporate discussions of confidential matters; inadvertent disclosures; and keeping results of a corporate internal investigation immune from discovery.
