Quinn Emanuel Partner William Burck to Speak at PLI’s "White Collar Crime 2016: Prosecutors and Regulators Speak"


On September 30, 2016, Quinn Emanuel Partner William Burck will speak at a unique program presented by PLI entitled, “White Collar Crime 2016: Prosecutors and Regulators Speak." In an increasingly global and coordinated fashion, the DOJ, the SEC, the CFTC, and other U.S. and foreign agencies are pressing forward with a white collar enforcement program of unprecedented scope and severity. PLI’s program will provide the background and tools necessary to deal with white collar cases and civil enforcement actions, and to design and implement effective compliance and risk management strategies. Attendees will hear directly from current and former high-level officials in many of the country’s top enforcement agencies — including the U.S. Attorney’s Offices for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, and the U.S. Department of Justice Criminal and Civil Fraud Sections — as well as in-house counsel and leading defense practitioners, about the current and future priorities for the government and the practical implications for companies or clients.

Topics covered will include:

  • An update on the SEC’s enforcement priorities, including fraudulent sales practices, accounting violations, high-frequency trading issues, and insider trading.
  • A focus on the Yates Memo as it approaches the one year mark: what has it meant for corporations and individuals? The discussion will address increased civil enforcement against individuals.
  • Review of trends in FCPA enforcement: evolving approaches to internal investigations, compliance best practices, and remedies.
  • Lessons from recent white collar trials, and risk areas that compliance and in-house lawyers should be prepared to address.
  • Ethical issues in white collar investigations: issues for in-house attorneys and outside counsel.

Friday, September 30, 2016 from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm (Eastern).

Where: PLI New York Center, 1177 Avenue of the Americas, 2nd floor (entrance on 45th Street), New York, New York 10036.
