Webinar: White Collar Investigations Impacting Corporate Executives - Winter 2021 Key Developments
Lauren E. Briggerman, Katherine E. Pappas, and Ian A. Herbert will present, "White Collar Investigations Impacting Corporate Executives - Winter 2021 Key Developments," on February 26, 2021.
The fourth quarter of 2020 resulted in some significant developments in white collar investigations impacting corporate executives, including:
- The first federal criminal antitrust charges targeting collusion in the labor market
- The settlements of four former Wells Fargo executives with the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) for their role in the bank's systemic sales practices misconduct
- The guilty plea of the president of the International United Auto Workers Union (UAW) and settlement of the UAW for their roles in a scheme to embezzle union dues over a nearly 10-year period
These developments unfolded against the backdrop of the global pandemic, which led to the resumption of criminal trials in some jurisdictions in the fall of 2020, followed by the widespread shuttering of courthouses and delays of jury trials by year's end. This webinar will provide an update on new and expanding white collar investigations, the status of courthouses across the country, and noteworthy prosecutions and sentencings of executives.
