NY City Bar White Collar Crime Institute

The National Law Review is pleased to bring you information about the inaugural White Collar Crime Institute, on Monday, May 14, 2012 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in New York City, NY.

This excellent review of developments in criminal and regulatory enforcement has been organized by our White Collar Criminal Law Committee, chaired John F. Savarese of Wachtell Lipton Rosen & Katz. Our program will feature keynote addresses by Preet Bharara, United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, and Eric Schneiderman, Attorney General of the State of New York. The panels on key legal and strategic issues will include senior government officials, federal judges, academics, general counsel of leading New York based corporations and financial institutions, and top practitioners in the field. We have crafted the program to maximize their value for white collar practitioners and corporate counsel.

Plenary sessions will focus on:
  • Providing perspectives of top general counsel concerning the challenges they confront in this new era of expanded corporate prosecutions
  • Discussions of the increasing importance of media coverage in these cases and its impact on prosecutorial decision-making.

Break-out sessions will address:

  • Techniques for winning trials
  • Ethical issues presented by white-collar corporate investigations
  • Trends in white-collar sentencing, and
  • The special challenges of handling cross-border investigations.

A group of in-house attorneys developed the National Law Review on-line edition to create an easy to use resource to capture legal trends and news as they first start to emerge. We were looking for a better way to organize, vet and easily retrieve all the updates that were being sent to us on a daily basis.In the process, we’ve become one of the highest volume business law websites in the U.S. Today, the National Law Review’s seasoned editors screen and classify breaking news and analysis authored by recognized legal professionals and our own journalists. There is no log in to access the database and new articles are added hourly. The National Law Review revolutionized legal publication in 1888 and this cutting-edge tradition continues today.
