EU Legal Professional Privilege & the Impact of Brexit
Following the end of transition period, legal advice given by UK-qualified lawyers may no longer attract EU legal professional privilege in the member state jurisdiction by default, as it used to.
This virtual learning session is brought to you by Alexandra von Westernhagen, a leading EU lawyer and trainer with more than 20 years’ experience in EU law.
EU legal professional privilege applies in competition proceedings conducted by the EU Commission and is to be distinguished from national legal privilege (which potentially applies in e.g. civil law procedures at national level).
