ruhlandChristopher S. Ruhland Apollo Dispute Resolution, author of the Practising Law Institute treatise Attorney-Client Privilege Answer Book (2021)


In this CLE presentation,  Apollo Dispute Resolution partner Christopher Ruhland discusses the attorney-client privilege specifically as it relates to in-house lawyers and their clients. Mr. Ruhland examines the most common myths about the in-house attorney-client privilege as well as best practices for maintaining the privilege in challenging situations.

Mr. Ruhland is a trial lawyer and former in-house counsel at The Walt Disney Company. He teaches trial and pre-trial advocacy techniques to other lawyers and is a frequent author and speaker on civil litigation and intellectual property topics. He also is the author of Attorney-Client Privilege Answer Book (Practising Law Institute), a reference guide for lawyers and clients seeking to understand the most significant privilege in the law.

  • When and why do courts deny privilege claims because the lawyer was in-house rather than outside counsel?
  • Which corporate employees can have privileged conversations with in-house counsel, and which ones can impede privilege claims?
  • What kinds of communications between in-house lawyers and their clients are protected by the privilege, and how can in-house lawyers manage the risk that their communications will be disclosed in litigation?
