Brooks Pierce Sponsors Privilege and Ethics for Inside Counsel CLE for RTAC-ACC
Brooks Pierce will sponsor the “Privilege and Ethics for Inside Counsel” CLE for the Research Triangle Area Chapter (RTAC) of the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) on November 29.
Brooks Pierce partner Gary Parsons will speak at the event, discussing the legal and ethical boundaries of attorney-client privilege, inadvertent waiver of privilege, multi-jurisdictional practice, litigating privilege issues, joint defense or common interest privilege, work product immunity, and in-house counsel’s ethical duties to protect confidential information and when they should or may disclose.
Parsons is a litigator's litigator: he tries cases. He has participated in more than 80 trials, over 125 appeals, and has represented clients in courtrooms in at least 70 of North Carolina's 100 counties.
