In-house lawyers know that an email is not automatically cloaked in privilege just because a lawyer is copied on the communication. But when exactly are communications and information privileged, and when are they not? Are there risks for inadvertent waivers that an in-house lawyer might not be thinking about? And could working remotely affect privilege? This presentation outlines what in-house lawyers should know about the attorney-client privilege and work-product doctrine and the top four things that in-house lawyers should communicate to clients about protecting privilege.
