The “Multiple Hats” Conundrum | Attorney-Client Privilege for In-House and Government Attorneys

Event Description

Presented by the MSBA Health Law Section

Please note that this is presented remotely through live webcast via Zoom. Attendees will have the option to view online and/or dial-in. 

Live Webinar Description:

Lawyers practicing in-house or for the government face particular challenges – you’re seen as a confidant, an advisor, and a business partner.  The easy and daily access to the legal department also increases the ability to develop friendships with the people in your organization.  As a result of this environment, it is easy for the lines of the attorney’s role to blur and create client confusion as to how and when they are asking for and receiving legal advice, and for the attorney to help the individual understand that the attorney represents the organization and not the individual.  This session will explore these complex interactions, how technology has further blurred the lines and complicated the ability of lawyers to protect privileged conversations with business leaders, and offer sound best practices to help both you and your client understand the role and limitations of the Attorney/Client Privilege.
