Navigating Congressional Investigations: Understanding New Priorities and How to Respond to Congressional Investigations
One of the unique, and often overlooked, investigative bodies in Washington, D.C. is the United States Congress. With Representatives and Senators in constant fundraising and re-election cycles and the constant challenge of actually passing legislation, the Congressional Investigation, and participation therein, is a critical vehicle for members of both chambers to obtain visibility and demonstrate their commitment to governing on behalf of their constituencies. During this presentation, you will hear from those who labored under the marble columns of the Capitol and deftly navigated their clients through congressional scrutiny. In light of the stated platform of the administration and the majority in Congress, the presenters will also cover the “hot” areas that will face special scrutiny during the 117th Congress.
In this program, you’ll gain valuable insights from four of our DC insiders: Fry Wernick, former Assistant Chief of DOJ’s Criminal Fraud Section, FCPA Unit supervisor, and Senate staffer; Zach Terwilliger, former U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, and Senate staffer; Mike Dry, former Deputy Criminal Chief for the Eastern District of Virginia; and Conrad Bolston, who focuses on environmental and litigation, compliance counseling and white collar defense. The group will share their perspectives on what to expect in enforcement and what it means for you and your companies.
