Program Number: 2980 Presenter: Andrew D. Garrahan, Esq., Laura Schwalbe, Esq., Angelle Smith Baugh, Esq.

Most attorneys are familiar with the basics of the attorney-client privilege, the attorney work-product doctrine, and attorney ethics rules to maintain client confidentiality. Although these precepts are governed by the law of the jurisdiction, the general protections are similar regardless of the jurisdiction. It is critical to identify and protect these privileges when a client is under investigation by the government, whether that investigation is a criminal or regulatory matter or a congressional investigation.
