The members of Ally Law’s Litigation Specialty Group have prepared a multijurisdictional compendium of the law of attorney-client privilege as it relates to in-house counsel: “Attorney – Client Privilege in the Global Context: Practical Guidance For In-House Counsel.” Links to the compendium appear throughout the Ally Law website and on the websites of Ally Law member firms around the world.
“Attorney – Client Privilege in the Global Context: Practical Guidance For In-House Counsel” contains the fundamental information relating to each jurisdiction’s application of the law of attorney-client privilege as it pertains to in-house / company-employed counsel, including issues such as intra-company investigations, and communications with Board members and former employees. Issues of waiver of the privilege and aspects unique to each jurisdiction are also covered. For instance, Ally Law member Blum & Grob notes that attorney-client privilege does not extend to in-house counsel under Swiss law, a critical piece of information when confronting dispute resolution with a Swiss company.
