PLI Seminar: Govt. Investigations

Government Investigations 2015: Electronic Information in Investigation and Response

New York City and Live Webcast,
March 23, 2015, 1:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Please select the graphic below to view complete event details.

In many ways, 2014 was the year that highlighted privacy and security issues involving electronic information. As revelations of massive data breaches and the loss of private information became public, both regulators and corporate entities grappled with the consequences of those revelations and the investigations that followed. At the same time, regulators and corporations continued to deal with the challenges of the ever-increasing volumes of electronic information that are relevant to all types of government investigations. These important trends will continue in 2015 and beyond. Our faculty, which includes judges, regulators, and attorneys experienced in government investigations, will address these issues as well as the “how and why” of government investigations and corporate responses. They will use panel presentations on general topics as well as specific case studies to guide you through this dynamic and growing field of law.

What You Will Learn

• What triggers a government investigation?

• What is the scope of a government investigation?

• What are the limitations on a government investigation?

• What might the government demand in an investigation and how might a corporate entity respond to such a demand?

• What room for negotiation exists between a corporate entity and the government?

• What is the role of — and relationship between —parallel civil proceedings and government investigations, and how might they be coordinated?
