Your company just received an unexpected phone call from an attorney at the Department of Justice. The attorney informed you that the government has been investigating your company for violating a federal statute and intends to file formal criminal charges later that morning.  Immediately after the call, the board of directors is notified and a meeting scheduled with senior managers to discuss the situation. As the company’s general counsel, you immediately start sketching out a legal to-do list: engaging external counsel, gauging the company’s legal exposure, formulating a litigation strategy, identifying employees involved in the conduct and other issues.
