October 2019 – Yasmine Lahlou recently led a discussion on “Protecting legal privileges and commercial confidences” at the 14th ICC New York Conference on International Arbitration. She spoke about issues of privilege and commercial confidence, and how the disparity of regimes makes the outcome uncertain for both counsel and parties. She addressed several key issues, including how to identify and withhold privileged material in practice, how to resist claims of privileges and how to protect commercial confidences, also considering the discretion of the arbitral tribunal on the issue and in the absence of an agreement by the parties. Following the discussion, Yasmine led several case scenarios on the topic.
The annual ICC New York Conference on International Arbitration seeks to create a highly interactive environment and lively debate among arbitrators, legal practitioners, in-house counsel and academics who wish to learn more about developments in international dispute resolution.
