WilmerHale Financial Institutions Webinar Series: Yates Memo Update—Individual Accountability and Best Practices for Executives

This session kicked off the WilmerHale 2016 Financial Institutions Webinar Series, where attorneys will explore recent developments and legal issues affecting financial institutions and providers of financial services.

During this session, WilmerHale Partners Ronald Machen, Anjan Sahni and Matt Jones discuss the impact of the Yates memorandum, the US Department of Justice's (DOJ) guidance governing individual accountability in corporate investigations.

The panelists address the policy's implications, including how financial institutions and other companies approach and interface with the DOJ, and provide practical advice for senior officers.

The panelists also discuss the DOJ's current enforcement priorities and recent bolstering of compliance and enforcement staff, and share predictions on how the DOJ's renewed focus on individual accountability may affect the approach of other US regulators and enforcement agencies.
