Written especially with the practitioner in mind, this revised edition provides guidance for understanding and handling the many complexities of attorney-client privilege and confidential communication in the corporate setting.

Chapters in this practical guide are written by a team of professionals with diverse experience and background. The authors illustrate, and in many cases offer solutions to, those problems being addressed through the application and interpretation of the attorney-client privilege and the attorney work-product doctrine. Although seemingly simple in definition, the interpretation of these two principles is increasingly being tested as new legal entities are created and modern technology is employed in today’s legal environment.

Sharing their insights and expertise on the most important aspects of protecting the free flow of information between attorney and client, the book’s authors cover these key topics and more:

  • Guidance for corporate counsel
  • Perspectives on the attorney-client privilege and the work-product doctrine
  • Confidentiality and how it relates to the attorney-client privilege
  • Preserving candor between lawyers and clients
  • Defining fair game in the e-discovery era and how to protect your client
  • Protecting attorney-client privilege in specific situations, including during an internal investigation, in bankruptcy cases, in communications between insureds and insurance carriers, and in patent litigation
  • The intersection of privilege and hired media consultants, and more

Many chapters include useful appendices, including a 50-state survey of attorney-client privilege, forms, table of cases, and supplemental and illustrative documents.
