Privilege Review in Bankruptcy: A Practical Tutorial CLE Presentation at Cole Schotz New Jersey Office

July 19, 2018Attorneys: Daniel F.X. Geoghan, Ian R. Phillips and Mark Tsukerman
Program Description:

    Large chapter 11 proceedings often give rise to large document review projects, frequently on a compressed schedule. While document review platforms now provide powerful tools to get through documents quickly, privilege review remains the domain of human beings, otherwise known as “junior associates.” Unfortunately, “privilege” and “work product” are often invoked, but just as often poorly understood.
    This presentation will provide a practical guide to conducting a privilege review in three key bankruptcy jurisdictions: Delaware, the Southern District of New York and the Southern District of Texas.
    This presentation will focus on the following: 1) What law of privilege and work product applies in bankruptcy proceedings (state vs. federal)? 2) What nuances are there regarding privilege and work product in each of the three jurisdictions? 3) How does one properly assert privilege and the work product doctrine in each jurisdiction? 4) How does one waive privilege and work product protection in each jurisdiction? 5) Preparing a defensible privilege log under Federal Rule 26(b)(5) and any relevant jurisdictional nuances. 6) Applying all of the foregoing to examples.

Date: Thursday, July 19, 2018 - 9:00-10:30 am (EST)
