Program Date
2021-06-07

In the post-Covid world companies are sensitive to how they are perceived and are increasingly turning to Public Relations consultants for help in shaping their messaging. Where messaging relates to litigation or regulatory investigative matters, however, matters disclosed to third parties may waive attorney client privilege or work product protection and companies and their counsel must take care to craft their interactions with Public Relations consultants to take advantage of the limited exceptions to waiver that courts have recognized. The panel will discuss recent case law and offer best practices to put themselves in as good as position as possible to ensure that privileged and protected communications remain confidential.
