Attorney-Client Privilege in Government: Whether, When, and to Whom the Privilege Applies
Presented by Strafford
October 1, 2019
1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT
HSE Government and Internal Investigations attorney Laura Schwalbe will be co-presenting a CLE webinar on October 1, 2019 titled, "Attorney-Client Privilege in Government: Whether, When, and to Whom the Privilege Applies."
This CLE webinar will alert public and private government attorneys, along with those who represent clients involved in government investigations, to the unique aspects of the attorney-client privilege. Government attorneys must pay attention to who, precisely, their client is, and what policy considerations exist in government representation that do not exist in purely private representation. Attorneys representing clients involved in government investigations should begin paying attention to potential privilege questions on day one of the investigation.
The panel will review these and other relevant matters:
- How to provide maximum protection under the privilege to government clients
- Instances when the privilege would exist in private representation but not necessarily in government representation
- Recent developments in the area of privilege during government investigations
- Policy considerations relating to waiver or loss of the privilege
