About Justin Goodyear
Justin Goodyear focuses his practice on white collar enforcement, internal investigations and other litigation matters. His background as a prosecutor of securities fraud and FCPA cases enables him to assist clients with responding to government investigations, preparing for litigation, and developing policies and training programs to enhance compliance. His recent representative engagements include:
§ representing a US financial services firm in a securities fraud investigation;
§ representing a US financial services firm in an insider trading investigation;
§ representing a European investment company in an FCPA investigation;
§ conducting a risk assessment for a power company entering the Chinese market; and
§ representing a US custodian bank in a state court action in which plaintiffs asserted breach of fiduciary duty, Uniform Securities Act and other claims arising out of securities lending practices during the 2008-2009 credit crisis.
From 2010 to 2015, Mr. Goodyear was a trial attorney in the Securities and FCPA Units of the Fraud Section of the US Department of Justice (DOJ). During that time, he led multiple global investigations into possible FCPA violations by major companies, oversaw a securities fraud investigation into a broker-dealer that resulted in a guilty plea and a multi-million dollar resolution, and investigated matters related to insider trading violations and stock market price manipulation. Mr. Goodyear also tried criminal Ponzi scheme and Medicare fraud cases.
Prior to joining the DOJ, Mr. Goodyear worked as an associate at another New York law firm, where he conducted investigations into FCPA, healthcare, energy industry and accounting matters, and represented clients in securities, bankruptcy, and other civil and criminal litigation. He served as a law clerk for the Honorable Robert A. Katzmann of the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and the Honorable Naomi Reice Buchwald of the US District Court for the Southern District of New York
About Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr
WilmerHale provides legal representation across a comprehensive range of practice areas that are critical to the success of our clients. We practice at the very top of the legal profession and offer a cutting-edge blend of capabilities that enables us to handle deals and cases of any size and complexity.
Since the issuance of the Yates Memo in late 2015, the US Department of Justice has pursued a policy of seeking accountability from individuals who perpetrate corporate wrongdoing. It requires that any company under investigation must deliver all proof of wrongdoing by its employees to receive credit for cooperation. The DOJ policy thus added a heavy burden to any corporation that intends to use an internal investigation as support for leniency or a settlement.
With the avowedly business-friendly Trump administration comes uncertainty over how priorities will change under the new attorney general and reconstituted DOJ staff. In this two-hour live webcast, a panel of thought leaders brought together by The Knowledge Group will discuss the current state of Yates Memo enforcement as it affects inside counsel and internal compliance officers, and further how the preferences of the current administration may translate into refocusing or revision of DOJ policy.
Key Topics Include
§ Yates Memo Overview
§ Individual Accountability
§ Internal Investigations
§ Disclosure Requirements
§ Cooperation Credit
§ Criminal/Civil Liability
§ Enforcement Trends
