Now more than ever, corporate investigations are a centerpiece of corporate compliance, risk management, government investigations defense and litigation strategy. Evolving government agency standards and guidance concerning voluntary disclosure are only a small part of public and privately held corporations' needs to assess the conduct of officers, directors, employees, and contractors and their impact on corporate liability.

The national institute will bring together leading practitioners and in-house counsel to address the legal, ethical, marketing, strategic, and managerial considerations to guide participant's decision-making. Experts including auditors and investigators will share their valuable experience and insights into the issues in conducting corporate investigations.

The keynote speaker is Preet Bharara U.S. attorney, Southern District of New York. Other speakers are Richard Strassberg, Goodwin Procter LLP; Steven Tyrrell, partner, Weil Gotshal & Manges LLP; James E. Day, vice president and chief counsel enforcement, FINRA; and Robert J. Cleary, partner, Proskauer Rose LLP.
