On Wednesday 13 January 2016, a cross section of our clients based in Singapore joined our Disputes and Corporate Crime & Investigations teams and Bankim Thanki QC, a leading commercial advocate and litigator who has practised extensively in the region and the editor of The Law of Privilege (Oxford), for a roundtable discussion on the preservation of privilege.

In this e-bulletin, Alastair Henderson, Pamela Kiesselbach and Daniel Waldek summarise some of the key issues discussed in relation to privilege and its preservation, and practical suggestions coming out of those discussions.  The ebulletin looks at internal investigations, internal information gathering for the purpose of obtaining legal advice, and waiver of privilege as a result of disseminating legal advice internally or sharing it with third parties.

For more information, please contact the authors or your usual Herbert Smith Freehills contact.
