O'Melveny to Host "Enforcement Trends and the Current Economic Crisis"

May 28, 2009

O'Melveny partners Richard Grime, Howard Heiss, Greta Lichtenbaum, Ken Wainstein, and Stevan Bunnell, and senior counsel David DeMuro will lead a seminar for O'Melveny clients on enforcement trends and the current economic crisis on May 28. The three-part panel discussion will be held in the New York office.

US companies are evaluating changes in a new era of criminal enforcement policy. Corporate upheavals, financial bail-outs, increasing FCPA enforcement, and the Obama Administration's focus on corporate transparency all are working in concert to transform the US criminal enforcement landscape. The following panel discussions will address these topics and more.
