Attorney-Client Privilege: Nine Things That Boards Need to Know
On Wednesday, April 18, 2012 Morvillo Abramowitz Partners Judith Mogul and Jonathan S. Sack took part in a Directors & Boards webinar entitled, "Attorney-Client Privilege: Nine Things That Boards Need to Know." Officers and Directors need a clear understanding of the attorney-client privilege. To protect the privilege and prevent unintended disclosures of sensitive legal advice and attorney work-product, it is important for directors to understand issues such as how and when the attorney-client privilege and the work product doctrine apply in the corporate context; who may assert and/or waive the privilege on a corporation's behalf; and when internal investigation reports and other "work product" generated by an investigation are, and are not, privileged. In this 60-minute free webinar, Mr. Sack and Ms. Mogul, joined by Wayne P. Yetter, a former CEO and currently a corporate director on multiple boards, discussed and offered answers on how to help navigate this sometimes confusing landscape.
