The New Focus on Individual Accountability for Corporate Wrongdoing and Implications for Government and Internal Investigations
Thursday, March 10, 2016
The Offices of Hodgson Russ LLP
140 Pearl Street, Buffalo, NY
3:30 to 7:00 p.m.
The United States Department of Justice recently issued a memorandum to federal prosecutors nationwide making it clear that the federal government is refocusing and sharpening efforts to pursue individuals as part of white collar investigations, prosecutions and civil enforcement actions. In fact, a renewed, more aggressive approach to investigations generally, with a focus on individuals specifically, has already begun.
The Yates Memorandum changes the playing field for companies, their owners and executives, and individual employees in avoiding, managing, and handling both internal and government investigations. Federal, state, and local white collar enforcement and regulatory trends will be discussed.
• Avoid regulatory and enforcement trouble
• Protect companies and individuals
• Manage government inquiries, investigations and litigation
