Leaders at DOJ and SEC have recently said that they intend to focus more on individual prosecutions and to cooperate more with foreign authorities. But they have also given indications that they understand the need for companies to limit the scope of investigations. At the same time, DOJ has created a new “compliance counsel” position. What does all of this mean? Can we expect more enforcement, less enforcement, or just a different kind of enforcement? Based on a thorough review of the public statements of DOJ and SEC enforcers, the speakers will address the following questions and others:
- Can we expect any changes in DOJ policy under the new Attorney General and her team?
- Can we expect more individual prosecutions?
- What has the current leadership at DOJ and SEC said about scoping investigations, self-disclosure and individual prosecutions?
- What can we expect from the new DOJ Compliance Counsel position?
- What are the most effective investigative and advocacy strategies in this new enforcement environment?
