Corporate Privileges and Confidential Information

by Jerome G. Snider (Author), Howard A. Ellins (Author), Michael S. Flynn (Author)

“The single best source for attorneys to consult concerning issues dealing with the attorney-client privilege. It's a must have for any lawyer.” —Michael Ross (practitioner and law school professor)

Corporate Privileges and Confidential Information is designed to assist inside and outside counsel in negotiating obstacles to maintaining corporate secrecy. All rights to privacy and confidentiality that a corporation may assert are gathered in this useful volume, which also includes advice on how to protect information otherwise required to be disclosed to a government agency.

This definitive treatment covers: attorney-client, work product and joint defense privileges; trade secrets; confidential submissions to federal and state authorities; financial privacy; and access to personnel files. It presents guidance on complex issues such as: the unique position of corporations in claiming privilege; application of the work product privilege to internal communications; the causes and scope of a waiver of the work product privilege; differentiating between inside counsel's business and legal functions to determine attorney-client privilege; insuring confidentiality of information supplied to a government agency; the dangers of intra-corporate discussions of confidential matters; inadvertent disclosures; and keeping results of a corporate internal investigation immune from discovery.
