  • White collar criminal investigations and prosecutions continue to dominate the headlines. In an evolving and dynamic enforcement landscape, the demands on and consequences for both institutions and individuals have escalated on a seemingly upward spiral. The scope and nature of white collar matters have become even more complex as large, cross-border, multi-jurisdiction investigations proliferate. The challenges of defending these matters have increased, as the DOJ demands that companies help it build criminal cases against their employees as a measure of cooperation and investigations take on international dimensions with continually evolving cybersecurity challenges. After enduring public criticism, enforcement authorities are focused on seeking to hold individuals criminally and civilly responsible.

    The White Collar Criminal Law Committee has assembled a comprehensive full-day program that will explore these and other critical developments that have characterized this era of white collar enforcement. The keynote speakers will be the Honorable Robert L. Capers, US Attorney for the Eastern District and Sally Quillian Yates, US Deputy Attorney General.

    Our panels will include senior government enforcement officials, judges, senior legal personnel from New York-based corporations and financial institutions, and top practitioners in the field. During the plenary sessions, you will learn about the DOJ’s new policy on cooperation, hear the perspectives of former white collar defendants and foreign lawyers, and hear about lessons from recent trials. Break-out sessions will focus on cybersecurity and the role of experts in investigations.

    Special Feature: Women in White Collar Kickoff Reception held the evening before, Monday, May 9, 2016 from 6:30 pm-8:30 pm, an opportunity to hear from Deirdre M. Daly, US Attorney, District of Connecticut and to network in a more intimate setting the evening before the institute. This reception is included in the institute price and all registrants and faculty are encouraged to attend.
