Bunzel to Speak at Stanford’s Rock Center’s PanelFebruary 20, 2013
O'Melveny parter Sharon Bunzel (SF) will serve as a panelist at Stanford’s Rock Center’s February 20 program on “Critical Risks Facing Technology Companies in 2013: Thoughts from Corporate Counsel & the SEC.” Here is what the website says about the program.
Recent press coverage has highlighted a number of corporate risks and the corresponding significant, adverse financial implications for companies and their shareholders. These include billions in financial charges caused by:
- Global acquisitions gone bad, including those with allegations of fraud,
- Alleged violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act,
- Other government & corporate internal investigations,
- Data breaches of corporate networks and theft of intellectual property,
- Struggles to obtain judicial approval of corporate/SEC settlements.
This interactive panel, comprised of in-house counsel from top technology companies, the Securities and Exchange Commission, and outside counsel, will share their insight regarding compliance programs, investigative procedures, and other best practices to mitigate these traps and stay out of the headlines as well as tips on how to effectively handle these problems if they do arise.
