Crisis-management and public-relations guru Richard Levick and his team create and publish a daily podcast dedicated to in-house counsel. The podcast, In-House Warrior, features Richard interviewing lawyers and others on a variety of topics relevant to today’s in-house lawyers.
I recently sat down with Richard, virtually of course, to discuss the evolution of the corporate attorney–client privilege and how courts apply the privilege to outside and in-house counsel. Topics include regulatory advice versus legal advice, in-house counsel as a business advisors, how the privilege applies to consultants (including PR consultants), and practice tips for establishing the privilege in daily communications. And a magic wand makes an appearance—though, sadly, there is no magic privilege wand that I have found.
So, whenever you head out for your next run, walk, workout, commute, or other venture that calls for airpods and a podcast, listen to the interview and see if you agree with my comments, tips, and observations.
