Prompted by the ongoing economic crisis, greater corporate accountability has become an increasing focus by politicians in Washington as well as courts and regulatory agencies across the country. Today's in-house counsel must not only juggle all the substantive compliance balls in the air, but the procedural ones as well, including ensuring preservation of the attorneyclient privilege.
