About the Program

This program will focus on the use of the privacy privilege in litigation. When can or should that objection be made? What is the scope of the objection? How is the objection preserved or waived? Can a business assert that objection on behalf of itself or its client(s) when faced with a subpoena? How can one get around that objection if seeking information relevant to the litigation. How does this privilege relate to a claim of proprietary business information?
