In an increasingly global and coordinated fashion, the Department of Justice, the SEC, the CFTC, and other US and foreign agencies are pressing forward with a white collar enforcement program of unprecedented scope and severity. With a spotlight on the financial services sector, the authorities are advancing novel theories and exacting increasingly draconian penalties. The government's enforcement agenda is broad and complex, encompassing trading violations in commodities, securities, and derivative markets; bank regulatory matters such as anti-money laundering and sanctions compliance; accounting fraud; foreign corrupt practices; and, increasingly, cyber crime.
This unique program, now in its eighth year, will give attendees the background and tools necessary to deal with white collar cases and civil enforcement actions, and to design and implement effective compliance and risk management strategies. Attendees will hear directly from current and former high-level officials in many of the country's top enforcement agencies, including the US Attorney's Offices for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, the Department of Justice, the US Securities and Exchange Commission, the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the Manhattan District Attorney's Office, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, and the New York State Department of Financial Services, as well as leading defense practitioners, about the current and future priorities for the government and the practical implications for your company or clients.
