Miller & Chevalier 2020 White Collar Enforcement Survey
For the past few weeks, the narrative around white collar enforcement has, broadly speaking, been this: In the short term, investigations and prosecutions – like nearly everything else – will be delayed, and when enforcement picks back up, priority will be given to COVID-19-related domestic fraud, be it cases involving newfangled "miracle cures," insider trading, or CARES Act relief funds.
A recent flash survey of top white collar attorneys, however, adds new depth and complexity to this story. For executives forced to adjust enforcement postures in this uncertain time, the insights gleaned from this data may help guide crucial compliance decisions – today and in the weeks and months to come.
