GIR Connect: New York 2021

Speaking Engagement

Global Investigations Review will host GIR Connect: New York 2021. This half-day event will bring together leading practitioners to discuss topics at the forefront of investigations law. 

Stephanie Avakian, chair of WilmerHale’s Securities and Financial Services Department, will be moderating a panel titled, “The Biden Administration Report Card.” Just under a year into the new administration, this session will explore recent developments at the DOJ and the SEC, their enforcement priorities and personnel changes. In particular the panelists will discuss: 

  • Has the widely predicted uptick in white collar enforcement actions materialized?
  • What areas of focus have we seen and do we expect to see?  

Panelists include representatives from the Fraud Section of the US Department of Justice; Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison; and Covington & Burling.
