Topics covered include the limits of prosecutors’ ability to rely on foreign compelled testimony, the limits for electronic surveillance and searches in the U.S. and abroad, and the complexities presented by the differences in recognition of the corporate attorney-client privilege particularly as it relates to in-house counsel across various jurisdictions.
