News You Can Use

Privilege is a jurisdictional construct, yet given the widespread use of electronic communications, documents are often transferred from one jurisdiction to another with little thought as to the maintenance of privilege in those communications. Organizations need to give thought to protecting these communications and (as far as they are able) maintain privilege in them in a multi-jurisdiction environment especially if documents are transferred to jurisdictions whose idea of privilege is very different to our own (or non-existent).
