We are in a brave new world of whistleblower regulation and litigation. Now three years after the passage of Dodd-Frank, the SEC Office of the Whistleblower is making an increasing number of bounty awards – including a recent record-breaking $14 million award – and federal courts across the country are defining and redefining the statute’s complex contours. Companies, meanwhile, continue to field the flood of hotline complaints in an effort to sift the chaff from tomorrow morning’s front-page expose. These trends, coupled with the continuing robust pace of FCPA enforcement, provide the perfect storm for keeping in-house counsel and compliance professionals up at night.
Featuring an experienced panel of anti-corruption and compliance practitioners, this webcast will detail Dodd-Frank’s statutory and regulatory framework, discuss its early interpretations by the SEC Office of the Whistleblower and federal courts, and provide the participant with practical tips for navigating the minefield of whistleblower complaints.
Please join F. Joseph Warin, partner, Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher; John Chesley, associate, Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher; and Jay Perlman, Director, Navigant as they address these issues and your questions in a free, one-hour webcast.
