Legal Privilege in Global Investigations: What businesses need to know

Event Details


Global | September 15, 2021

When it comes to multi-jurisdictional investigations, a key challenge for in-house counsel is to maintain legal privilege. While the concept of legal privilege is acknowledged in many jurisdictions, the actual meaning of that concept and the way it is applied can vary substantially. In practice, key documents, data and communications used as part of an internal investigation can be acknowledged as privileged in one jurisdiction but not in another. These differences may be crucial in shaping the company's and individuals' liability, commercial and reputational exposure.

We will be hosting a webinar on this topic on Wednesday, 15 September 2021 at 14:00 - 15:00 BST where we will highlight important differences in legal privilege protection in key jurisdictions which investigation teams must account for when conducting cross-border investigations and which may lead to civil, administrative or criminal liability or proceedings. 

In this webinar, we will also introduce our Global Guide to Legal Privilege in Investigations 2021, prepared by our Global Investigations team, in collaboration with some of our best-friend law firms.
