Practising Law Institute presents a live webcast:White Collar Crime 2010: Prosecutors and Regulators Speak
In the wake of the financial crisis, prosecutors and regulators are aggressively seeking to uncover and prosecute white collar violations. The past year has seen the largest insider trading case in history, continuing exposure of Ponzi schemes and other investment frauds, aggressive enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, a major reorganization of the Enforcement Division of the Securities and Exchange Commission, continuing tax shelter prosecutions, and investigations into pension-fund investment practices led by state attorneys general. The Department of Justice released new guidance on Brady disclosures, the SEC announced guidelines intended to encourage cooperation by individuals, and the courts have exercised greater oversight in SEC settlements and parallel proceedings.
This program will give you 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.
Paul Hastings partner Timothy Dickinson is a featured speaker for the discussion, "Foreign Corrupt Practices Act - Developments and Trends," from 1:30 pm to 2:45 pm.
