Judge Blocks Subpoena Against Sidley Austin
Oct.20.2014 — Global Investigations Review
Washington, D.C.-based White Collar & Regulatory Enforcement Group partner, Philip T. Inglima, speaks to Global Investigations Review regarding his experience with subpoenas being blocked by a judge, even when it appears that all the appropriate steps have been taken to avoid a waiver or broad disclosure of the privileged materials. "These types of subpoena requests are becoming routine now, so companies are having to be ever more careful in making disclosures or presenting evidence to the DOJ so as not to waive attorney-client privilege and work product protection," states Inglima. "Delivering limited presentations orally is one way of reducing the risk."
