Dear Members,

Legal privilege and professional secrecy can be powerful tools to protect organisations but are sometimes misunderstood concepts, particularly when it comes to in-house lawyers working in companies involved in cross-border activities.

Recent ECJ cases give valuable guidance.

With Ms Claire Manier acting as moderator, Me Pit Reckinger and Mr Andrew Smith discussed what legal privilege means in some key jurisdictions, what it covers (and what it does not) as well as provided practical examples and tips to protect your organisation and your clients based on recent key cases.
