Event Synopsis

The regulatory criminal enforcement climate has drastically changed for all industries. Whereas fraud prosecutions were once limited to certain industries and only extreme violations, every business these days is fair game. The stakes are higher, and the lines between "mistakes" and "crimes" are increasingly blurry. This presentation is designed to provide an overview of some of these critical trends; a glimpse inside the government's "playbook;" as well as some steps that clients can take to reduce the risks, to demonstrate good corporate citizenship, and to add value to their companies. Since an effective compliance program is the best form of "enforcement insurance" available, the discussion will highlight the core principles underlying such programs, as well as some practical pointers in conducting internal investigations, and responding to subpoenas and search warrants.

" fraud?" A Former Prosecutor's Guide to Help Executives Minimize Risks & Add Value LIVE Webcast, which is especially geared to CPA’s, CFO's, GC's, Risk Officers, and Attorneys, will pinpoint ways to avoid and reduce risks in business crimes, Including ways to prepare for such risks.
