In-house counsel and the attorney client privilege – a multi-jurisdictional survey (Lex Mundi)

The member firms of Lex Mundi (See my posts of May 30, 2005 and Dec. 19, 2005 about it and other associations of law firms) assembled a “country-by-country overview of the availability of protection from disclosure of communications between in-house counsel and the officers, directors, or employees of the companies they serve.”

With the analysis effective as of Oct. 1, 2004, the report lays out the privilege, limitations to it, and alternative methods of protecting the information flow between employee-lawyer and client (See my posts of July 25, 2005 about European views and Oct. 31, 2005 about the attorney-client privilege as it applies to corporate attorneys.).
