The recent court decision in the False Claims Act/Qui Tam case of U.S. ex rel Kalid-Kunz v. Halifax Hospital Medical Center, et al, underscores the importance of properly protecting your client’s privileges. Preserving the attorney-client and work product privileges is critical for both clients and their counsel during government investigations and other disputes. Establishing appropriate protocols and procedures to protect those privileges is key and often a challenge as demonstrated by the U.S. ex rel Kalid-Kunz court’s rejection of a number of the defendant’s privilege claims.
Our experienced panel will cover the court’s recent decision and provide practical considerations to mitigate the risk of losing these privileges.
