Paul Butler participated in a panel titled “Connecting The Dots – Managing Privilege In An Interconnected World” at the Tax Executives Institute

The contours of various privileges (attorney-client, attorney work product, spousal, etc.) vary from one jurisdiction to another domestically from whether each privilege exists to who holds (or “owns”) the privilege to how it is waived or preserved. Putting those issues into cross-border transactions and negotiations conducted through a variety of communication vehicles only increases the complexities, some of which were identified and unraveled in this panel discussion.

Co-panelists: Thomas V. Linguanti (Morgan Lewis) and S. Starling Marshall (Covington & Burling, LLP)
