    Pamela Sakowicz Menaker, Communications Partner at Clifford Law Offices and Associate Editor of the American Bar Association (ABA) Litigation News, authored an article on the issue of attorney-client privilege in a business merger. “Attorney-Client Privilege Passes to Acquiring Company in Merger” appeared in the March issue of Litigation News that is disseminated to the 60,000+ members of the ABA Section of Litigation.
