IPBA Guidelines on Privileges and Attorney Secrecy in International Arbitration

Session Synopsis:

The session will update participants on the finalised guidelines (and accompanying commentary) and discuss oft-encountered problems in the area of a claim of privilege against documents production and testimony across civil and common law jurisdictions in international arbitration. The guidelines are intended as a self-contained code to provide uniformity and predictability to this vexed area of arbitration practice. The session is a follow-up to the session of the IPBA Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Committee on Privilege in Manila 2018. It is also open to IPBA members who have not attended the session in Manila.
