Does your organization default towards privileging risk assessments? Do you ever wonder if it’s truly necessary to use privilege as much as your organization does? Do you understand which specific criteria must be met for privilege to be upheld in the court of law? Heck, who even knows what attorney-client privilege really means? We hope to clear up the confusion! Discussion will center on these and much more as we dig deeper into this ambiguous area of compliance. We will also cover the difference in roles attorneys and non-attorney compliance professionals play in this process, and how to maintain a healthy partnership between the two, despite natural tension that exists. Finally, we will discuss real-world impacts of compliance work under privilege, and how it may affect others in the business.
