Attorney-Client Privilege, the Confidentiality of Statements Made by In-house Counsel and Other Issues of Privilege in International Arbitration
Jurisdictions around the world treat the issue of confidential communications between an attorney and client and other types of privilege differently. This raises the question of how matters of privilege are dealt with in international arbitration. What standards or law should international arbitrators apply when confronted with an issue of privilege and what considerations should guide any decision? This panel will consider the issue of privilege in international arbitration and specifically address questions over the choice of law governing privileges, the extension of privilege to cover communications by in-house counsel, the confidentiality of statements made in settlement or mediation processes and governmental privileges.
