Minimize Risk Exposure: Strategies for Leading Internal Investigations

Venue

This is a virtual event, accessible online and over the phone. Access instructions will be provided after registration.

Description

This complimentary webinar is produced in connection with the latest Bloomberg Law Special Report.

Let’s face it – misconduct happens. Actions by a rogue employee, a coordinated scheme, or a systemic problem left unidentified and unchecked can result in a violation of company policy, or worse, the law. These legal and regulatory compliance vulnerabilities pose significant risk, cost and disruptions to business. And companies operating internationally face added complexity and strategic considerations, ranging from protection of attorney-client privilege to transferring data to the U.S.

This webinar will bring together the latest insights from experienced in-house counsel and law firm practitioners on what domestic and multinational companies need to know about the process of investigating allegations of fraud, theft, misconduct, harassment, misuse of personal information, and other wrongdoing. Experts will share firsthand knowledge and best practices to investigate and address compliance issues to mitigate the burdens on the company’s bottom line.

Educational Objectives:

• Recognize important considerations to ensure the investigations process is efficient and thorough
• Receive guidance on reducing the impact on business operations
• Identifying the roles of various stakeholders

Who would benefit most from attending this program?

• C-suite leaders in domestic and multinational companies
• In-house counsel
• Attorneys specializing in any area of international operations
