Investigations 201: Protecting the Attorney Client Privilege in Cross-Border Investigations

September 26, 2017 • Webinar

Starts: 11:00 AM (EDT)
Ends: 12:00 PM (EDT)

As lawyers, we want to protect our client's investigation and strategy as confidential. With increasing government pressure to probe into the details of an investigation, how is that accomplished? And how does counsel balance the competing claims, inconsistent laws, and practices of different jurisdictions while maintaining confidentiality? Crowell & Moring’s Investigations practice lawyers will discuss preserving privilege during various stages of cross-border investigations. Our presenters will respond to real-time questions taken from our listeners.

Topics of discussion will include:

  • The delegation of tasks and sharing of information between in-house and outside counsel and the use of non-lawyer investigators 
  • Best practices for conducting employee interviews, including the efficacy of Upjohn warnings in global investigations 
  • Determining the use and distribution of the investigation report
