AntiTrust Division Did Not Require Attorney-Client Waiver in Samsung Agreement

It is nice to see that the Antitrust Division of DOJ is not requiring a waiver of attorney-client privilege on its plea agreement with Samsung  Electronics Company, LTD and Samsung Semiconductor, Inc.  The plea agreement here specifically notes in two places in the cooperation portion of the agreement that it requires production of "non-privileged documents, . . ."  It may not be a deferred prosecution agreement, but it is nice to see a branch of the justice department respecting the attorney-client privilege.
