In the first webinar of our Health and Safety Webinar Series we will focus on recent case-law developments that analyse the issue of legal privilege, and how that will have a consequence for companies looking to conduct internal inquiries when faced with allegations of potentially criminal conduct.
The webinar will consider the principle of legal privilege, and will review recent decisions of the English courts which have culminated in the Court of Appeal Judgment in the case of Serious Fraud Office (SFO) v Eurasian Natural Resources Corporation Limited (ENRC).
