Foley's Litigation Department is pleased to sponsor at the upcoming 19th Annual General Counsel Conference with American Lawyer Media and Corporate Counsel Magazine in New York City.

More and more, the General Counsel must be a strong voice on crucial issues that extend far beyond the legal department. From compliance to governance to protecting products overseas, the effective GC must be equipped with the most up-to-date information on substantive legal issues and cutting edge corporate developments.

Foley attorneys Seth Levine and Michael Tuteur will present on a panel on Tuesday, June 5 from 9:00 am to 10:00 am to discuss:

The Regulatory Pendulum – What Pro-Active General Counsel Must Know
Prosecutorial and regulatory interest in investigating and prosecuting companies continues to increase in intensity and have far reaching consequences for entities under scrutiny. The breadth, scope and intensity of this activity creates substantial challenges for those who manage public companies' legal and compliance functions. In light of these developments, this panel will consider topics relating to understanding and responding to governmental investigations, such as:

  • Managing the legal function during governmental investigations
  • Coordinating responses to governmental investigations and related civil litigation
  • Corporate governance issues faced by companies under investigation
  • Financial reporting issues raised by investigations
  • Lessons from the front and what they mean for future prosecutorial and regulatory actions
  • Consideration of privilege waiver in the wake of the McNulty Memo and changes at the SEC
