The globalisation of law and commerce creates ever greater complexities for internal and external lawyers. One of the thorniest areas of complication involves privilege and confidentiality. Privilege and Confidentiality: An International Handbook canvasses rules across 18 common and civil law jurisdictions. A handy, desktop manual, it offers those who deal with different jurisdictions a quick and easy introduction to the topic.
Chapters follow a consistent template in addressing issues, making cross-referencing between jurisdictions quick and easy. Topics covered include the scope of privilege/confidentiality in each jurisdiction, how issues commonly arise, particular issues facing internal counsel, and how to protect the contents of documents that are disclosed in a legal or investigative process.
