Courts have not always consistently applied the protections of attorney-client privilege and work-product doctrine in internal investigations. The author discusses the Supreme Court’s seminal Upjohn case, which recognized such protections, and then turns to more recent cases in which the Upjohn principles were tested and faltered. She then discusses the scope of privilege abroad and concludes with some practice tips and takeaways.
