Ethics Issues in Government Investigations

ACC Annual Meeting

26 Oct 2010 09:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.

San Antonio, TX

Where does in-house counsel’s obligation to promote business interests meet the obligation to disclose bad news?  Join experienced counsel as they address what actions to take during the first 24 hours after you are notified that your company is being investigated by the government, how to handle executives and employees who mistakenly press for in-house counsel to represent their interests (as opposed to the company’s), and how to handle communications with employees, the press, clients and suppliers.  The program also will address ethical limits on government actions and appropriate means for invoking them.
