When the Government Calls: Managing Major Civil and Criminal Investigations
In this age of close corporate scrutiny, public and private businesses increasingly are being targeted for intrusive civil and criminal investigations. While federal investigations predominate, state and even foreign government agencies also are becoming more aggressive in pursuing perceived corporate malfeasance. Major civil and criminal investigations can be incredibly disruptive, not just because of the time and expense involved, but also because of the harm to a company’s reputation and supply chain. In-house counsel often are performing a high-wire act, balancing corporate interests in transparency and responsibility, with the need to control and manage the legal aspects of the investigation. Join Armstrong Teasdale Partners Timothy Bergère, Katharine Ladd and Michael Witsch as they discuss these issues and share real-world examples, tips on mitigating risk and exposure, and advice on how to respond and act nimbly when your company finds itself at the center of an investigation.
