Respondents to the Global Perspectives: ACC In-house Trends Report were
asked if communications between in-house lawyers and other company
employees have privilege — with 72 percent saying yes and eight percent
saying no. However, these numbers reflect a large number of US-based in-house respondents. In Europe, only 39 percent of the in-house sample are
protected, and only 59 percent are protected in Latin America.
According to the Global Perspectives: ACC In-house Trends Report, 35
percent of respondents noted that they intend to conduct mandatory
breach training within the next 12 months. Seventeen percent of
respondents note that they plan on retaining outside counsel in the case
of a breach.
Forty-eight percent of respondents to the Global Perspectives: ACC
In-house Trends Report stated that they receive adequate compensation
for the work they perform in their current position. Eighty-one percent
believe that they are able to live comfortably based on that compensation.

For European in-house respondents to the Global Perspectives: ACC

change — with 32 percent stating that it will affect business relations

business relationships “somewhat.”
