Like Chicken Little, government contractors may feel as though the sky is falling when faced with the disclosure obligations under the Mandatory Disclosure Rule and the threat of an internal investigation. But, fear not...

Join us to learn tips and best practices from the perspectives of in-house and outside counsel for avoiding pitfalls and minimizing exposure to your company when conducting internal investigations and determining whether and how to make a disclosure under the Rule. The panel will cover the following questions:

  • What do we need to disclose?
  • What is a timely disclosure?
  • Who should disclose?
  • What are the potential consequences of disclosure, and
  • How can I minimize those consequences?

Additionally, panelists will discuss this year’s developments on the attorney-client privilege, and provide advice for protecting the privilege during internal investigations in light of recent decisions.
