The “Attorney-Client Privilege in M&A deals: Preserving and Controlling the Privilege” webinar guide deal counsel in navigating the challenges of preserving and controlling the attorney-client privilege in M&A transactions.

Key Topics include:
What lessons do recent court rulings offer M&A counsel in developing best practices and advising deal parties to protect privileged communications?
In what circumstances can counsel assert the privilege--and how can counsel navigate the grey areas?
How can the common interest privilege be leveraged to protect pre-closing confidential communications when litigation ensues post-closing?
