  • Get grounded on the definition of the attorney-client privilege. Discuss the legal basis for performing privileged risk assessments from both Legal and Compliance perspectives, and explore circumstances when a privileged risk assessment is helpful.
  • Explore the difference in roles of attorneys and compliance professionals, even when the compliance professional is an attorney by education and experience, and how to maintain a healthy partnership between the two, despite natural tension.
  • Discussion centered on the real-world impacts of compliance work under privilege, from the perspective of a non-attorney compliance professional.
