Synthesis

Jacques Buhart introduced the webinar. He recalled that legal privilege has been a topic that has agitated the legal community for many years. The question of legal privilege is important not only in international cartels, being investigated in several jurisdictions but also multiple merger control proceedings and international criminal investigations.

A good understanding of the webinar for everyone requires a definition of the essential legal concepts. It is important to distinguish the legal professional privilege (the “LPP”), from confidentiality and professional secrecy.
