Practical Law The Journal (February 2010) interviewed partner Richard E. Donovan on current dispute resolution issues facing general counsel.
The article examined the rulings on the attorney-client privilege in United States v. Ruehle. The case serves as a reminder to counsel that their representation of clients must be clearly specified when conducting interviews during corporate investigations. It also addressed how once the attorney-client privilege was waived when a conversation was disclosed in an internal investigation, the privilege could not be later asserted. The article also discussed the increase of challenges to arbitrator appointments.
