For NY - Difficulty Level: For experienced attorneys only (non-transitional)


Government investigations can be unpredictable, political, and often public. If handled incorrectly, they can last for many years and spiral into multiple Congressional, criminal, or regulatory investigations at the state and federal levels, and generate serious reputational harm. It is essential all organizations have a strategic government response plan in place and take a proactive approach to these investigations, but what does that look like?

This program was recorded as part of ALM's Legalweek Conference on March 9th, 2022.
