Recent developments in the case law interpreting Pennsylvania’s and the FRCP’s work product limited immunity doctrine have made carefully delineating attorney’s business and litigation roles for a client increasingly important for transactional attorneys, in-house counsel, and litigators alike. Several federal circuits have taken very different (and seemingly inconsistent) views regarding whether certain types of duties routinely performed by in-house counsel or transactional attorneys can qualify for work product protection. This course is a resource for in-house counsel and transactional attornies involved in the business affairs of a company or client, this course will provide the framework for undertaking the necessary analysis of whether communications could become discoverable if subsequent litigation commences involving the subject of in-house interactions.
