    The Corporate Counsel Committee presents: Effective Use of Privilege By Corporate Counsel

    The protections of the attorney-client privilege and work product have the potential to be implicated for every document an attorney creates, as well as certain types of documents created by non-lawyers, yet the scope of these protections is often misunderstood. That is especially true as it relates to in-house attorneys, whose communications generally involve both business and legal aspects, and for practitioners outside the United States, where the law of privilege is often much less robust.
