Online via Zoom



A robust compliance program can not only prevent and detect potential fraud and other violations of company policy, regulations and laws, but also it can serve as a defense against criminal, regulatory and civil suits against the company, its executives and Board members. This panel will:

•  discuss guidance by government prosecutors and regulators regarding what they expect in terms of a compliance program and the involvement in that program of corporate actors

•  describe and give examples of how those guidance documents have been applied by government regulators and prosecutors

•  provide practical examples of how companies, executives and Board members can, and have, relied on the company’s compliance program in defense of various legal actions.
