BANKING LITIGATION PODCAST EPISODE 31: SPECIAL EDITION – PRIVILEGE

In this special edition of our banking litigation podcast, we consider some key issues on the topic of privilege which will be most relevant to in-house lawyers at banks and financial institutions. This episode is hosted by Ceri Morgan, a professional support consultant in our banking litigation team, who is joined by Claire Nicholas and Benedicte Perowne.

The focus of this special edition is on the thorny issue of who is the “client” for privilege purposes and how this will affect practical matters such as information gathering by the in-house legal team, communications with external lawyers and reporting to the board. We also look at the extent to which regulated firms can rely on privilege when asked to produce documents by their regulator.

Please do get in touch with your usual HSF contact should you wish to organise a privilege training session.
