Corporate counsel are charged with the task of protecting information relayed to them or compiled at the behest of a client. This article examines problems encountered by corporate counsel attempting to invoke the attorney-client privilege or work product immunity doctrine to protect information. The author recommends that corporate counsel implement procedures designed to retain confidentiality and remain abreast of modifications in case law pertaining to attorney-client privilege and work product immunity. The confidentiality of corporate information is best preserved by adherence to an organized system of procedures for gathering information.
