Attorney-Client Privilege Guide for General Counsel, Lex Mundi and Jenner & Block

Jenner & Block Partner David M. Greenwald co-authored the Attorney-Client Privilege Guide for General Counsel with Lex Mundi. The guide details what constitutes attorney-client privilege in more than 65 common and civil law jurisdictions around the world.  Topics include elements/basics; privilege in corporations; litigation funding; crime-fraud exception; work product doctrine/litigation privilege; and other privileges, including accountant-client privilege, mediation privilege and settlement negotiation privilege.  Mr. Greenwald was quoted in an article for Corporate Counsel about the release of the guide.  “Some of the important questions that I’ve gotten are how do different jurisdictions treat in-house counsel and who within the corporation qualifies as the client for the purposes of privilege," Mr. Greenwald said.
