Webinar: DOJ targets executives in corporate investigations



Date: September 25, 2015

Time: Noon–1:15 p.m. Eastern

Location: Webinar (access instructions e-mailed upon registration)

The U.S. Department of Justice recently issued new guidance calling for increased focus on executives’ individual responsibility in investigations, prosecutions, and resolutions of corporate misconduct. For companies, this policy could have significant effects on internal investigations and on negotiations with the government.

Join Nixon Peabody for a webinar on September 25 that will provide a timely update on how these guidelines will impact companies faced with government investigations. Our team of seasoned former prosecutors and attorneys with extensive board and C-level representation will help you learn why this new policy poses several concerns. Topics for discussion include:

  • Distilling the Yates Memorandum
  • Disclosing “relevant facts” for cooperation credit
  • Potential conflicts between corporations and their employees
  • Concerns about waiver of attorney-client privilege and work product protection
  • Possible changes in how companies should approach indemnification
  • Proactive steps to implement strong compliance and ethics programs
