Attorney-Client Privilege and Work Product for In-house Life Sciences Lawyers: Strategies to Maximize Privilege While Maintaining Effective Communications


This is a virtual event, accessible online and over the phone. Access instructions will be provided after registration.


The life sciences industry is highly regulated at every stage of the business, from the discovery of new therapies and devices to the sale and marketing of those innovations once they are approved. Lawyers in the industry offer legal advice in almost every phase of the business, which makes maintaining the attorney-client privilege much more complex when litigation ensues.

This webinar will address the current law regarding attorney-client privilege and work product protection in the life sciences industry, including best practices and practical tips for protecting privilege and work product for life sciences lawyers. We will discuss how to approach effective internal communications as well as litigation strategies.

This webinar is intended for lawyers at every level, including those relatively new to the industry who have not had their communications scrutinized for privilege claims before and those who have been in the industry for decades, who may be surprised at some recent decisions that make maintaining the privilege challenging.

We hope you will take part in this complimentary CLE webinar.
