The article by folks at Burns & Levinson is here.  It’s short, and the key takeaway is:  “it behooves in-house counsel to let their business clients know that if they are considering relinquishing control of the company, they likely will lose the right to keep communications with in-house or outside counsel confidential unless they contract to retain that right in the transaction documents.”
