Privilege assertions remain to be one of the highly contested areas in internal investigations. Taking a misstep by disclosing sensitive information can surface damaging legal and reputational consequences. With the ethical traps and numerous issues during an investigation, the protection of privilege is tricky.

Further, they must plan for proactive measures to advance their client’s best interests.
