Akin Gump To Present Program In NYC On Recent Trends In DOJ And SEC

Monday, May 4, 2009 - 00:00

Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP has scheduled a luncheon program on Tuesday, June 2 from noon to 1:30 p.m. at its offices at One Bryant Park, 43rd Floor, NYC titled Recent Trends in DOJ and SEC Actions Against In-House Counsel.

The speakers will be Akin Gump partners Michael A. Asaro and James J. Benjamin Jr.

The role of in-house counsel is coming under increased scrutiny. The Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission have brought several actions against in-house counsel, often describing in-house lawyers as "gatekeepers." This seminar will focus on the following topics: the types of proceedings that have been brought in the past; recent developments and comments from prosecutors and regulators about the future of actions against in-house counsel; practical steps you can take to minimize your risks while also balancing your sometimes-complicated role as in-house counsel to your companies.

This seminar will fulfill one hour of ethics credit for the State Bar of New York.
