About Pepper Hamilton LLP
Pepper Hamilton LLP is a multi-practice law firm with more than 500 lawyers nationally. The firm provides corporate, litigation and regulatory legal services to leading businesses, governmental entities, nonprofit organizations and individuals throughout the nation and the world.
Pepper’s Securities and Financial Services Enforcement Group is a client-centric group of lawyers with particularized expertise in the enforcement process. The group was created to recognize the reality that companies that provide financial services are multi-faceted and, therefore, are subject to a wide range of regulatory regimes. Our goal is to meet you, the client, where you are; not to try to pigeon-hole your needs into a pre-existing practice group. To that end, we have combined the talents of many lawyers with different areas of expertise into one cohesive unit with a singular goal in mind: To help public and private companies providing financial services weather the storm of an ever-expanding regulatory and litigious environment and respond rapidly and forcefully to increased scrutiny by the government, its agencies and self-regulatory organizations.
The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act made many sweeping changes to the regulatory oversight of the financial services industry – including public companies and their employees. We are here to help you navigate through these dangerous waters.
In this two-hour live webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders will help business executives, accountants, auditors, and attorneys understand important aspects of these significant topics. They will provide an in-depth discussion of the latest SEC enforcement efforts in relation to accounting fraud and financial disclosure cases for 2014 and beyond. Speakers will also offer best practices in developing and implementing an effective compliance program and techniques to identify red flags and deter fraudulent schemes for companies to ensure compliance with regulations and avoid hefty penalties.
Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:
− The Accounting Quality Model and Financial Reporting and Audit Task Force
− The Role of Whistleblowers in Financial and Accounting Fraud Cases
− Discussion on Significant Issues for Financial Statement Disclosures
− Recent SEC Enforcement Efforts with Case Citations
− Key Techniques to Identify Fraudulent Schemes and Best Practices in Developing an Effective Compliance Program
