Internal Investigations 2012: How to Protect Your Clients or Companies in the Global, Post-Dodd Frank World

Released on: Jul. 10, 2012
Running Time: 05:55:56

In today's uncertain economic, legal and regulatory environment, companies, their executives, and their counsel need to be proactive in identifying risks and remedying potential issues. Knowing how to conduct efficient and effective internal investigations is key to protecting your clients or company.  Using a real-world hypothetical fact pattern throughout the day, expert panels review the many considerations and issues that can and do arise from the beginning to the end: issues to consider before and when commencing an investigation, conducting an investigation, dealing with the regulators, and concluding the investigation.  The program is designed to touch on many practical issues arising today: international, data privacy, labor and employment law issues, as well as fundamentals of the investigation.  Also new this year: hear from the plaintiffs’ bar as well as defense counsel, in-house counsel and regulators.  As they work their way through the hypothetical, the panels will provide you with practical tips, and tools and you will leave the program with a better understanding of how to handle investigations successfully for your clients or company.
