  • White collar criminal prosecutions, investigations, and reform efforts have always triggered widespread political, social, and economic reverberations, but perhaps never more so than in today’s world.  The scope and nature of white collar matters have become more complex, as defense attorneys, prosecutors and regulators grapple with a global pandemic and shifting political tides, navigate challenging cross-border and multi-jurisdictional issues, and adjust to an evolving and uncertain enforcement landscape—all under intense press and public scrutiny.  With a new administration taking control of the federal government, it is a particularly important moment to take stock of what’s in store in the year to come.

    The White Collar Crime Committee has assembled a comprehensive, two-day, virtual program that will explore these and other critical developments that have characterized this era of white collar enforcement. Our panels will include senior government enforcement officials, former white collar defendants, and top practitioners in the field.

    Special Feature: Women in White Collar Keynote Speech and Virtual Cocktail Reception held from 6:00-7:30 pm on Monday, January 11, 2021, this event offers an opportunity to hear from New York Attorney General Letitia James and then network in a more intimate setting at the end of the first day of the institute.  This reception is included in the institute price, and all registrants are encouraged to attend.
