Navigating a Government Investigation

Our experience in recent cases suggests that there are some critical decisions, strategies and approaches that can help lead to a good result even when the government is laser focused on your company. Both the Department of Justice and Securities and Exchange Commission have been targeting the energy industry. We expect more investigations to be launched in the coming months.

Having a well-defined strategy can avoid costs and reputational damage in the long run. In this session, V&E attorneys shared critical lessons to help boards, audit committees, general counsel and compliance officers through the thicket of a government investigation. Mike Ward, the Chief Compliance Officer, Vice President and Deputy General Counsel of Juniper Networks, also presented an inside view of how to navigate such an investigation.
