KC Event Synopsis
Corporations facing publicized investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice, Securities and Exchange Commission, or other law enforcement agencies for alleged misconduct or regulatory violations must prepare for possible civil suits. These may be antitrust, false claims, and consumer class action suits. But, shareholder derivative and class actions are the most common actions filed against companies.
With such concurrent civil litigation, companies should develop a sound responsive strategy that includes robust documentation. There are significant incentives to cooperate with government authorities, but attorney-client privilege and attorney work-product waivers constitute an important aspect for attention.
In a two hour, live webcast, a panel of key thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an overview and in-depth discussion of the most suitable strategies for addressing Government Investigations and Securities Litigation.
Dr. Milev’s presentation will cover:
Detecting internal practice noncompliance: quantitative approaches to identifying and analyzing red flags
Evaluating materiality and damages stemming from issues uncovered during an investigation
Analysis of exposure related to government investigations and related securities litigation
Assessing the reasonableness of proposed remedies
