TOPIC: Managing Potential Misconduct and Enforcement Investigations - the Internal Counsel’s Perspective
The presentation will include a brief review of recent developments in the global enforcement landscape, including anti -corruption enforcement in an increasing number of jurisdictions, US trade and economic sanctions, and the World Bank sanctions program. The focus of the presentation will be on the key issues that inside counsel face in dealing with any of these regulatory issues: when to escalate the problem to senior management, the board; when to retain outside counsel; when and if to make voluntary disclosure; how to deal with employees and executives that may be implicated in wrongdoing; how to deal with the outside auditors. These are some of the critical questions inside counsel face whenever a potential legal or regulatory problem surfaces. One of the speakers, William Rosoff, was the Senior Vice President and General Counsel of two Fortune 100 companies, RJR Nabisco and Marsh and McLennan, and supervised a number of high profile internal investigations dealing with a range of legal and regulatory issues. He brings a perspective and experience not shared by many other outside counsels in this field.
