  • White collar criminal prosecutions, investigations, and reform efforts have widespread political, social, and economic reverberations, and this year is certainly no exception. The scope and nature of white collar matters have become more complex, as defense attorneys, prosecutors and regulators must define the contours of cooperation, navigate tumultuous cross-border and multi-jurisdictional issues, and adjust to an evolving and uncertain enforcement landscape-all under intense press and public scrutiny.

    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 Rod Rosenstein, Deputy Attorney General, US Department of Justice, and Steven Peikin, Co-Enforcement Director, US Securities and Exchange Commission.

    Our panels will include senior government enforcement officials, top practitioners in the field, and in-house lawyers. A distinguished panel will explain the ins and outs of special counsel investigations. You will also learn about the unique challenges of handling cross-border investigations and emerging topics in corporate investigations. The Institute will feature a discussion of lessons learned from recent high-profile trials, and you will hear from former white collar defendants.

    Special Feature: Women in White Collar Kickoff Reception held the evening before, Tuesday, May 8, 2018 from 6:30 pm-8:30 pm, an opportunity to hear the Honorable Cathy Seibel, US District Judge, SDNY, interviewed by Nancy Kestenbaum, Covington & Burling LLP, 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.
