SAN DIEGO, Calif. (PRWEB) February 23, 2016
Mark P. Schnapp White Collar Criminal Defense shareholder at global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP, will participate in this year’s American Bar Association (ABA) National Institute on White Collar Crime held Wednesday, March 2, to Friday, March 4, 2016, in San Diego, California. The 2016 Institute will provide a special program to celebrate its 30th anniversary, including an in-depth analysis of the evolution of the white collar crime practice over the past three decades and consideration of the changes expected in the years to come. Further discussions will also explore the impact of implicit bias in the courtroom and the makings of a post racial society.
Specifically, Schnapp will moderate the plenary panel: Ethical Pitfalls in Conducting Internal Investigations and Prosecuting and Defending White Collar Cases Friday, March 4, at 9:45 a.m. PT. The panel will discuss ethical concerns in conducting and defending investigations and prosecutions of white collar cases, including whom firms should represent and report to; how to interview employees; concerns about multiple representations; emerging issues in whistleblower case law regarding “no contact” provisions in employment agreements; and ethical quandaries in international investigations.
With more than 40 years of litigation experience, including seven years at the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of Florida, where he was Chief of the Criminal Division, Schnapp concentrates on white collar criminal matters, represents major companies in complex investigations, and has handled numerous jury and non-jury trials. Named a 2015 National Law Journal “Trailblazer” in White Collar, he has become known for his ability to craft unique strategic approaches in working with the U.S. Department of Justice and other agencies as an advocate for his roster of major multinational clients often involved in inter-agency ethics and corruption investigations.
