A number of questions regarding the enforcement priorities of government agencies remain unanswered as we begin a new year: Will the still-new administration cut back on enforcement? Will state attorneys general pick up any slack? These questions are important, but don’t get caught flatfooted as you ponder them—you need to be ready should the government come knocking. Investigations can lead to large fines and penalties, publication of embarrassing and sensitive information, expensive legal fees, and diversion of staff time, not to mention the risk of significant reputational harm.
Robust compliance management is the single most effective means of reducing the chances of government scrutiny and minimizing its fallout.
Our speakers—who have vast experience managing government investigations and enforcement actions from within and outside the government—will discuss specific, effective, and proven strategies for enhancing your organization’s compliance systems. Our speakers have guided companies and individuals through critical investigations brought by the FTC, state attorneys general, DOJ, CFPB, FDA, Department of Education, Department of Labor, and other state and federal bodies. The panelists will discuss how the government views compliance policies, programs, and systems; how such programs can be presented to a regulator; and, of course, how to incorporate best practices into a robust compliance management system.
