PLI's White Collar Crime 2011: Prosecutors and Regulators Speak
In the past year prosecutors and the SEC have ratcheted up their aggressive prosecution of white collar violations. Making increasing use of novel investigative techniques such as wiretaps and undercover investigations, the government has commenced a wave of high-profile insider trading cases, continued its concentration on enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and ramped up enforcement in a variety of other substantive areas. Among the forces driving the enforcement landscape have been the reorganization of the SECs Department of Enforcement and its new guidelines designed to encourage cooperation by individuals. The DOJ and key state and local prosecutors continue to devote substantial resources to white-collar prosecutions.
PLI offers this unique program to provide the background and tools necessary to spot the current issues in defending white collar cases and civil enforcement actions, develop workable risk management processes and implement effective defense strategies. Hear directly from current and former high level officials from the U.S. Attorneys Offices in the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, the SEC, the Justice Department, the Manhattan District Attorneys Office, the judiciary, and leading defense practitioners, about the current and future priorities for the government and their practical implications for your company or clients.
