Defending Corporations and Individuals in Government Investigations The Preeminent Forum on White Collar Defense and Government Investigations

Event Details

Sep 28, 2016

9am-5pm

Washington DC

Free

Several years following the end of the financial crisis, government enforcement agencies continue to investigate corporate conduct with exceptional vigor and to create a regulatory environment that poses enormous risk to companies and their executives.  The extraordinary growth in the number of corporate whistleblowers, the Yates memo’s focus on individual executive liability, and the frequency of explosive data security breaches have combined to create an endless stream of major new white collar investigations.  How do in-house and outside counsel remain up-to-date in this fast-paced and critically important enforcement environment?

Join us at the Willard InterContinental Hotel in Washington, DC on September 28th for the “Defending Corporations and Individuals in Government Investigations” conference based on the highly-regarded white collar treatise by same name to get advice from highly-experienced practitioners and current and former senior government officials about how to handle the many curveballs that may be coming your way.
