Involving any outside consultant in the attorney-client relationship gives rise to risks to the attorney-client privilege. Yet when a PR crisis erupts, good communications advice is essential, and a company’s media strategy can determine whether it is the subject of thoughtful, balanced articles or a maelstrom of misleading headlines – and whether unfair publicity infects any litigation that may occur.
That’s why my colleague Erica Yen and I are pleased to present this free Ethics CLE webinar, designed for in-house counsel at pharmaceutical and medical device companies, on “Privilege Protection: Tips for Working with Media Consultants Without Jeopardizing the Attorney-Client Privilege.”
Through discussion of case law and ethics rules, this webinar will analyze tips for working with media consultants that potentially can mitigate the risk that a company will have been deemed to have waived the attorney-client privilege.
This program is presumptively approved for 1.0 Ethics CLE credit in California, Illinois, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Texas and West Virginia. For lawyers licensed in New York, this course is eligible for 1.0 Ethics credit under New York’s Approved Jurisdiction Policy.
