BLOOMBERG BNA WEBINAR EVENT: Preserving the Attorney-Client Privilege and Ethics in Cross-Border Matters
Tuesday, August 27, 2013
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM ET
Protecting the confidentiality of your legal advice is one of your most important responsibilities as a lawyer. But when confidential information crosses international borders, legal professional privilege can be limited or lost altogether.
This practical program, filled with real-world examples, will help you avoid the pitfalls suffered by other in-house counsel, some of whom only first learned about this issue after a dawn raid by authorities outside the United States or a discovery request by a clever plaintiffs’ lawyer within the country.
- Understand what issues to be aware of when privileged information crosses international boundaries
- Learn from recent case examples and real-world hypotheticals
- Discover international efforts to harmonize privilege rules

In-house attorneys who counsel internationally can expect to benefit the most from attending this webinar, as well as those who are interested in current issues facing cross-border ethics and compliance today.
