Privilege

An update on the principles of litigation privilege in light of the recent decisions in Bilta (UK) Limited v RBS and Mecuria Energy Europe Trading Limited [2017] EWHC 3535,  SFO v Eurasian Natural Resources Corporation Limited [2018] EWCA Civ 2006, WH Holding Limited v E20 Stadium LLP [2018] EWHC 2784 and Sothebys v Mark Weiss Limited [2018] EWHC 3179 (Comm). The talk focuses on internal company investigations of wrongdoing once litigation is anticipated, and the extent to which these investigations may result in the creation of documents which are not protected by privilege.

Note: The Privilege and Confidentiality talks can be arranged as a combined talk upon request.
