Course Description: In their pursuit of a just outcome, arbitrators are generally relieved from the formalities of law. Yet, they constantly face critical issues of privilege and work-product protections as to documents containing otherwise relevant information.
This program will take participants from the basics of attorney-client privilege and work product, through current law on their application and protecting against waiver, to a graduate-level exploration of their real world issues that must be understood in reinsurance arbitration.

Charles Ehrlich: Chuck Ehrlich combines years of experience as an in-house claims executive and general counsel with an extensive background as a private litigator. Now an arbitrator and an expert witness on insurance matters, Chuck has encountered privilege and work product issues in a variety of real world situations.

Patricia Taylor Fox, Deputy General Counsel – Reinsurance, American International Group: Patricia Taylor Fox has over 15 years experience in the insurance and reinsurance industry. She currently serves as Deputy General Counsel in the Reinsurance Legal Division of AIG, where she is the head of the Dispute Resolution Unit. Ms. Fox has co-authored articles on evidence in arbitrations, attorney-client privilege, the common-interest privilege and developments in reinsurance law, and is a frequent speaker on issues relating to the arbitration of reinsurance disputes.
