2.0 Hours of VA MCLE ethics credit pending
On October 1st, Williams & Connolly partner Ana Reyes will present the Ethics CLE “International Attorney-Client Privilege and Ethics” in conjunction with the Association of Corporate Counsel – National Capital Region. Ana will be joined by panelists Susanna McDonald, Vice President and Chief Legal Officer at Association of Corporate Counsel and Danielle Carter, Director Compliance, Ethics, and SER at Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
As business transactions become increasingly global, so do government investigations and litigation disputes arising out of those transactions. Sophisticated counsel in today’s legal climate must be prepared to handle the implications of business agreements and activities that span numerous countries and subject the companies to multiple regulatory and legal regimes. This includes recognizing that countries have different rules governing the application of the attorney-client privilege and work product doctrine.
This CLE will provide a comprehensive review of the attorney-client privilege globally, with particular emphasis on its application to in-house counsel, while providing practical tips for maximizing protection for communications in countries that do not recognize the privilege as applied to in-house counsel. The CLE will also discuss examples of different ethics regimes globally.
