Jenner & Block Partners Stephen L. Ascher, Paul F. Jock, II, Joseph Diamante and Thaddeus J. Malik will be participating in the Corporate Secretary East Coast Think Tank to be held May 22 at The Lotos Club in New York City. The East Coast Think Tank gathers a group of senior-level corporate secretaries and in-house counsel to discuss pressing issues affecting them in their professional roles.

Mr. Ascher will be chairing a panel entitled “The New World of Privilege,” which will examine the impact of the Department of Justice's McNulty Memorandum and specifically how it will impact the attorney-client privilege. The discussion will focus on the ability of prosecutors to demand waivers and how to best deal with federal investigators under this new regime.

Jenner & Block is a sponsor of the event.
