Confronting the Corporate Crisis
Nossaman attorney Paul Knight will be a panelist in the session entitled, "Confronting a Corporate Crisis," at the 2015 Institute for Corporate Counsel on December 2 in Los Angeles.
Companies today face challenges and risks from multiple directions, often simultaneously – including cybersecurity attacks, privacy breaches, product recalls, and corruption allegations. In house counsel and their outside counterparts must often make critical judgments with imperfect information under significant time pressure. Using real world examples, this panel will teach you how to craft a game plan of procedures to assess and address crisis situations (including internal investigations). Topics covered will include: (1) scoping an internal investigation to meet the expectations of prosecutors and regulators while limiting its cost and disruption; (2) deploying the right internal and external resources to investigate the matter; (3) securing, reviewing, and analyzing volumes of electronic records efficiently and interviewing witnesses effectively; (4) avoiding data privacy and employment pitfalls; and (5) interacting with multiple enforcement agencies, possibly in multiple jurisdictions, to build trust and confidence.
