On February 1 William McGovern, who has extensive experience in cross-border government enforcement, will join the panel “Whither Privilege? – Attorney client confidentiality in the Cayman Islands, the USA, and the UK,” which will evaluate the state of attorney-client confidentiality in cross-border investigations involving offshore jurisdictions. The panel will discuss recent court decisions and the risks weakened privilege create for stakeholders.
