[Seminar+Printed Book] Legal Professional Privilege (Jan 2024)

For centuries, legal professional privilege (“LPP”) has allowed clients to consult their lawyers or prepare for litigation safe in the knowledge that such communications cannot be yielded up to public authorities or revealed in a court of law. Despite its ancient vintage and apparent simplicity, LPP continues to attract attention and controversy. In recent years, the higher courts across the common law world have had to consider significant issues, such as the relationship between LPP and confidentiality; how LPP applies to in-house counsel, multiple-addressee communications or in the context of regulatory investigations; and what exceptions there are to LPP or how it might be lost. The speakers in this seminar will examine these and other salient developments which are of practical importance to clients and their advisors, as they take stock of where the law of LPP stands across key jurisdictions. In addition, they will offer useful insights on topical questions, such as how to deal with issues of LPP in international arbitration, and how best to preserve or challenge LPP in legal or regulatory proceedings.
