WP 13 Confidentiality, secrecy, and privilege


This Working Party examines confidentiality, secrecy, and privilege issues in insolvency proceedings for corporates and banks. It attempts to fill the gap in legislation; address the lack of clear definitions and incomplete laws, including parties’ conduct regarding providing or withholding information, and analyse cases with regard to the application of these themes in corporate insolvency and bank resolution proceedings.
