Why You Should Attend
White collar enforcement continues to be a top priority of the Department of Justice, SEC, CFTC, and other U.S. and foreign agencies. In recent years, the enforcement agenda has shifted into new areas such as cybercrime, cryptocurrency, dark pools, and modern forms of market abuse such as spoofing. At the same time, the authorities continue to focus on traditional areas such as anti-corruption/FCPA, accounting and disclosure, AML and sanctions, market manipulation, insider trading, and domestic public corruption. The government remains committed to the prosecution of individuals as well as corporations, which has led to a rise in contested litigations and trials in recent years. U.S. authorities have continued to coordinate with other law enforcement agencies around the globe, and have grown increasingly aggressive in demands for production of electronic communications and other data.
This unique program will give you the background and tools necessary to handle white collar cases and civil enforcement actions, and to design and implement effective compliance and risk management strategies. You will hear directly from current and former high-level officials in many of the country’s top enforcement agencies, along with in-house counsel and leading defense practitioners, about the current and future priorities for the government and the practical implications for your company or clients.
This program is designed for lawyers who defend and prosecute civil enforcement actions and white collar criminal cases, as well as in-house and outside corporate counsel, and internal auditors and compliance officers. Additionally, government attorneys, forensic accountants, and other experts and consultants who handle white collar internal investigations, civil enforcement actions and criminal prosecutions will find this program extremely valuable.
