Highly-publicized fraud schemes, the change in presidential administration, and the biggest economic downturn in recent history have brought scrutiny on both the SEC and the DOJ and prompted potential changes to both their structures and enforcement priorities. New SEC Chairwoman Mary Shapiro has obtained budget increases and outlined plans to increase the effectiveness of enforcement. At the DOJ, enforcement is likely to be more robust as the Obama administration seeks to reassure distressed citizens that the government is actively enforcing regulations designed to protect investors and consumers.
This webcast entitled, “A New Frontier: Best Practices in Fraud Investigations and Emerging Trends in SEC and DOJ Enforcement” addresses critical questions about recent changes in the economic and political climates, emerging trends in SEC and DOJ enforcement, and the potential impact on lawyers, accountants, investigators, and other consultants who perform fraud investigations. It also outlines best practices when conducting investigations for the DOJ and SEC.
Please join panelists Gary Kleinrichert, Senior Managing Director in FTI Consulting’s Forensic and Litigation Consulting Practice; Pravin Rao, formerly an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Northern District of Illinois and currently a partner in the Litigation group of Perkins Coie; and Jose A. Lopez, formerly a Senior Attorney at the United States Securities and Exchange Commission’s Division of Enforcement and currently a partner at Schopf & Weiss LLP specializing in Securities Litigation, as they address these issues as well as your questions in a free, one-hour webcast.
