Attorney-client privilege in context of internal investigations
Turkey | 06 August 2018

In the absence of any clear guidance with regard to attorney-client privilege and white collar crime, the Competition Board's interpretation is a reference for future disputes and investigations. The board has held that companies subject to an investigation may refrain from disclosing their correspondence with their attorneys (and documents subject to this correspondence) provided that they explain who produced it and its purpose.
