Presented by ACC's Litigation Committee and Sponsored by Morrison & Foerster LLP

Now more than ever, companies are faced with increasing risk of government scrutiny and prosecution. On November 3, the SEC proposed rules implementing the Dodd-Frank Act’s whistleblower provisions to investigate and prosecute corporate wrongdoing, signaling that government agencies are continuing to refine their tools to expand and be more aggressive in their enforcement efforts. The Act’s provisions, which include increased protection and significant financial incentives for whistleblowers, leaves the business community with the complex challenge of encouraging internal reporting while competing with substantial rewards offered for reporting to the government.

This webcast will discuss recent enforcement developments relating to Dodd-Frank and its impact on your company, analyze the SEC's proposed rules regarding whistleblowing, and offer guidance on what you can do to minimize risk and prepare for the rapidly changing business and legal landscape.

For your convenience, this one hour ACC program will be offered to you in your office via webcast.
