Third Annual White Collar Crime Institute

New York, New York
19 May 2014
Hosted By: New York City Bar

NERA was a proud sponsor of the New York City Bar's 3rd Annual White Collar Crime Institute on 19 May 2014.

White collar criminal prosecutions continue to dominate the headlines. In this evolving enforcement landscape, where the trend is toward requiring admissions of wrongdoing as a condition of settlement, there seems to be less of an opportunity for traditional advocacy on behalf of corporate clients. Meanwhile, defending white collar matters has become even more complex as large, cross-border, multi-jurisdiction investigations proliferate. And the number of such investigations may continue to increase because the SEC's whistleblower program has created additional incentives for employees to report instances of wrongdoing to government prosecutors and regulators. Once a resolution of an investigation is in sight, companies and their counsel are faced with an enormous array of decisions with respect to fashioning remedial measures and structuring a compliance program that will minimize the likelihood of a recurrence of wrongdoing.

The White Collar Criminal Law Committee assembled a comprehensive full-day CLE program that explored these and other critical developments that have characterized this era of white collar enforcement. The keynote speakers were SEC Chairwoman Mary Jo White and FBI Director James Comey. The panels included senior government enforcement officials, judges, academics, general counsel of leading New York-based corporations and financial institutions, and top practitioners in the field.
