Federal Bar Council Presents :

Best Practices or Not? Internal Corporate Investigations

October 5, 2021
6:00pm – 7:30pm
Live Webinar

Internal corporate investigations typically result from discovery – by the company, the media, an external auditor, or a whistleblower – of circumstances that raise a serious concern of financial or other misconduct, which may expose the company, management, and the board to civil or criminal liability. The goal of internal investigations is to determine the validity and seriousness of the alleged conduct and what action, if any, the company should take consistent with the best interests of the future of the company and its employees/shareholders.

This program is intended to sensitize practitioners involved in internal investigations to complex, thorny issues that frequently arise, including those relating to: attorney-client privilege; employee interviews and representation concerns; whether to cooperate with government agencies or risk enforcement action and/or criminal prosecution; cross-border issues such as data privacy laws, cultural and language differences, and the specter of both foreign and domestic investigations and litigation. The distinguished panel will share their experiences from multiple perspectives as in-house counsel, private counsel with experience representing corporations and individual employees, Chief of the Criminal Division of the SDNY U.S. Attorney’s Office, and SDNY district judge.

Federal Bar Council Presents :

BSA/AML Enforcement and Compliance:

Foundational Principles and Recent Developments

November 16, 2021
5:30pm – 7:00pm
Live Webinar

Staying compliant with Bank Secrecy Act/Anti-Money Laundering requirements has always been important. But now, with the passage of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021 — pursuant to which the Anti-Money Laundering Act of 2020 (the “AML Act”) will become law and amend the Bank Secrecy Act for the first time since 2001 — it is more important than ever. In addition to strengthening the government’s anti-money laundering enforcement capabilities, the AML Act incentivizes whistleblowers to report deficiencies and otherwise signals a likely increase in regulatory scrutiny.

This CLE program will cover the nuts and bolts of BSA/AML enforcement and compliance, as well as the changes expected as a result of the AML Act.
