Partner Richard E. Donovan Interviewed in Practical Law The Journal Article on Dispute Resolution
February 2, 2010
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.
