Practising Law Institute: Corporate Compliance and Ethics Institute 2014
New York, New York
Legal and compliance risks for organizations are higher than ever before. Compliance and ethics programs to help organizations manage legal risks should no longer be considered optional. As the need for compliance and ethics programs has increased, government standards on these programs have become increasingly specific. In short, at no time has promoting and maintaining an ethical corporate culture been as essential for a company’s survival and success. Topics to be discussed include designing and conducting compliance risk assessments to obtain the most valuable information, the evolving role of the board, legal and professional ethics for compliance lawyers and compliance professionals, investigating and managing allegations of wrongdoing, and global compliance expectations and best practices, among others.
WilmerHale Partner Peter Neiman will be a featured speaker on the panel entitled, “Helplines, Investigations and Responding to Misconduct,” where he will contribute to a discussion on managing helplines and dealing with whistleblowers, combatting the fear of retaliation, best practices and guidelines for handling internal investigations, and maintaining the attorney-client (and other) privileges.
