WEBCAST: APAC: Attorney Client Privilege - A Global Perspective

ACC Legal Privilege

In general, Attorney-Client Privilege is a legal doctrine which protects written and oral communications between a lawyer and the lawyer’s client as confidential information. Attorney-Client Privilege is not absolute and does not apply automatically to every legal communication. While the concept exists in most jurisdictions, it varies greatly in terms of scope and application and in an increasingly global economy these differences (and their potential consequences) present a significant risk for companies and their legal advisers​. Join us as we explore attorney-client privilege, communications covered therein, and various approaches to it by several global jurisdictions.​
