Reacting to an incident – response co-ordination and reporting obligations. What makes a successful investigation?


The last 12 months have seen widespread change in the white-collar enforcement landscape, with a steady growth in Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) proceedings, new guidance from the Department of Justice (DoJ), and the shifting priorities that follow a new administration.

In this webinar, co-hosted by The Legal 500 and Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP, we ask what a Biden-era DOJ will look like, and how will it change white-collar enforcement priorities for general counsel. Our panel will assess the white-collar and sanctions landscape in 2021 to ask:

  • Will white-collar enforcement activity continue to increase through 2021?
  • What are the most significant potential enforcement trends and what GCs can do to prepare for them?
  • How will the new Anti-Money Laundering Act impact institutions in the US and beyond?
  • What sanctions and trade controls trends will be keeping GCs awake?
