Attorney Client Privilege and How to Stay Out of "Detention"


Confusion surrounds the attorney-client privilege. Many think they have it when they don’t and, even if they do, they fail to appreciate how easy it is to lose. In either case, not enough attention is paid to the possibility that the privilege may be unavailable. This presentation will address some common misconceptions regarding the creation, retention, and loss of the privilege and how best to protect confidential communications.
