A5 : Attorney-client privilege in the 2020s

“The attorney who acts for himself has a fool for a client.” We examine how conflicts arise when the General Counsel sits as a Director on the Board to which he is beholden. We also examine how regulatory obligations on legal advisors compromise the confidentiality between attorney and client in business matters. How these rules override trust where financial disclosures may have to be made, and in criminal matters where the need for self-regulation and compliance with international money laundering expectations impact attorney-client privilege? This session will discuss the challenge of providing the right balance in a client’s interest.
