Hear from Mark Daniels and Helen Simm on privileged communications

7 March 2019

Every business, and every in house lawyer, will at some point be involved with an enquiry, an investigation, or potential litigation. During litigation, documents – including emails, attendance notes and reports – which are relevant to the litigation may have to be disclosed if they are not privileged.  

So every business needs to know how it can assess litigation risk or conduct an enquiry without creating documents that it then has to produce and which may be detrimental to its position. The law on this issue has recently been considered by the Court of Appeal in two key cases: WH Holding Ltd v E20 Stadium LLP and SFO v Eurasian Natural Resources Corp Ltd

In this webinar recording, our experts Mark Daniels and Helen Simm provide you with the key information you need to identify these issues when they arise and to know how you can best protect your position.
