DataKos: Maintaining Privilege Moves to the Forefront

Posted by rjbiii on December 19, 2007

Contending that avoiding inadvertent disclosure of privileged documents will become the top EDD risk of 2008, DataKos opines:

There is much uncertainty, even among many lawyers, as to when the attorney-client privilege should be invoked or asserted. Let’s face it, business people, and lawyers too, insist on using email for everything. Hence, operationally, there are numerous challenges we all face in protecting confidential information from leaking through email forwarded to third parties.

Citing the adoption of new FRE 502, and the privilege waiver concerns dogging generals counsel, DataKos urges IT & RIM professionals to become acquainted with the issues.
