Breakout session 2 - Legal privilege: how to protect it from the investigative avalanche
Hilton São Paulo Morumbi Hotel



There is an avalanche of anti-corruption enforcement and, sometimes, the role of lawyers is misinterpreted. Legal privilege is viewed in a bad light by some anti-corruption authorities, but is one of the basic guarantees of democratic nations. This panel will discuss the potential impact of anti-corruption investigations on the relationship between attorneys – both outside and in-house – and clients in view of recent legal developments.
