PLI's Internal Investigations 2013

Wednesday, June 12 04:00 AM GMT to 04:00 AM GMT

Knowing how to conduct efficient and effective internal investigations is key to protecting your clients or company. Companies and their counsel need to be diligent and proactive in identifying risks and remedying potential issues. At this program, panels of experts from the private bar, in-house and the government use a real-world hypothetical fact pattern throughout the day to review the many considerations and issues that can and do arise from the beginning to the end of an investigation.

PLI's program is designed to review the fundamentals of conducting an effective and efficient investigation, as well as to touch on many practical issues arising today, including international issues, data privacy issues, labor and employment law issues, and more. Leave the program with a better understanding of how to handle investigations successfully for your clients or company.
