Preserving Privilege in IP Transactions:  As Intellectually Property dealings become increasingly complex and visible, the question of whether attorney-client communications disclosed in the context transactions are subject to privilege is of critical importance.  We will explain the nature of the privilege and evaluate historic and recent decisions addressing this issue to identify key practice points to consider with respect to disclosing attorney-client communications in the transaction context.  For example, is privileged maintained when providing an opinion regarding the strength or weakness of a patent to a potential buyer, a licensee or financing company?  These issue are often missed in the transaction context but can be vital to maintaining privilege on sensitive and important issues.
