Biography

Jeffrey Schomig's practice includes representing clients in government regulatory and criminal investigations and in civil litigation. His practice also focuses on advising clients and other attorneys concerning attorney-client privilege and work product doctrine issues in a range of contexts, including the formation of joint defense relationships and non-waiver agreements. His decade-and-a-half of focus on legal privileges has allowed him to gain unique perspective on this area of law. Mr. Schomig’s work includes:

* advising on the use of common legal interest arrangements to protect sensitive legal communications between transacting parties during complex deal negotiations;
* counseling on privilege protection issues for internal, regulatory compliance controls and policies;
* advising multinational clients on a range of issues involving the intersection of US and foreign privilege law, such as the impact of disclosure to foreign law enforcement authorities, compulsion and conflicts of privilege law;
* preparing a common legal interest arrangement for a multinational consortium of high tech companies to allow the members to collectively address regulatory concerns in a privilege-protected setting;
* preparing a communications protocol for trade association members to exchange privileged information;
* advising companies on privilege protection for internal investigation materials in response to data breach incidents; and
* counseling financial institutions on privilege waiver and work product claims issues associated with regulatory cooperation.

Engaging in cutting-edge developments impacting legal privilege is key to both influencing the direction of those developments, and remaining a thought leader who can counsel clients and colleagues on how developing issues will impact them. To that end, Mr. Schomig serves on the Privilege Standing Committee, the primary advisory body to the firm's lawyers on attorney-client privilege and work product doctrine issues.

Mr. Schomig is a frequent instructor at CLE courses and an author on privilege topics. His articles have been published by Bloomberg Law Reports, Bloomberg BNA, Antitrust Report, Corporate Counsel and the Association of Corporate Counsel’s The Docket.

Prior to joining WilmerHale, Mr. Schomig practiced insurance, aviation and commercial civil litigation in Maryland, where he represented corporate and individual clients at deposition, during negotiation, at motion hearings and at trial.
