Among Dodd-Frank's most vexing provisions are those that address whistleblowers and impose new burdens on compliance officers. Taken together, these provisions significantly expand the legal and compliance staff's investigatory responsibilities while creating an ethical and regulatory minefield for those conducting internal investigations. During the first program in Foley’s Market Regulation Series, we hope to clarify these issues and provide a roadmap firms can use to navigate this regulatory minefield.
The schedule for this program is as follows:
8:30 a.m. – 8:45 a.m.
