In 2020 the federal government approved historic levels of funding with The CARES Act while local governments implemented emergency relief to allay unemployment, health care, and housing concerns during the COVID-19 pandemic. Inevitably increased funding and regulations will result in expanded government oversight of organizations and thus greater risk of liability for the in-house attorneys and company compliance officers—the “Gatekeepers”—tasked with ensuring organizational compliance.
This program is designed for both gatekeepers and lawyers who represent them and will feature experienced in-house and outside counsel, chief compliance officers and government officials who will use hypotheticals to discuss a variety of topics concerning the responsibilities and conduct of gatekeepers and provide practical advice dealing with the government’s increased policing of the activities of gatekeepers.
