Come hear a panel of three leading transactional lawyers and litigators as they discuss how to deal with the attorney-client privilege in M&A transactions - including practical guidance on how to address privilege issues in acquisition agreements and the latest on the applicability of the "common interest" doctrine to M&A communications.

  • Lisa Bugni, Partner, Alston & Bird LLP
  • Joe Crace, Partner, Bass Berry & Sims
  • Trey Muldrow, Partner, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP

Among the topics of this program are:

  • How do the attorney-client and work product privileges apply in a transactional setting?
  • Can you protect lawyers' communications to non-clients on the deal team?
  • Can you protect communications between the buyer and seller?
  • Who owns the privilege after the closing? Does it depend on how the deal is structured?
  • How are buyers and sellers addressing privilege issues in their deal documents?
  • What are the best practices to protect the attorney-client privilege in an M&A transaction?
