Legal professional privilege is the entitlement of a party involved in litigation to refuse production/disclosure of the contents of a document in the discovery process. Its purpose is to allow a client to communicate openly with its legal advisors. However, privilege can be inadvertently waived where a business does not have a policy in place to protect its legally privileged documents. 

Our special Masterclass will consider practical issues concerning privilege and discovery and will provide guidance on how In-House Counsel can protect legal communications within the business. In addition, we will discuss how you can manage the discovery process in the most commercially effective and cost-efficient way and thereby minimise disruption to your business.
