These days, compliance issues are at the forefront of every manager's and fiduciary’s mind. Once upon a time, all the worry stemmed from a creative plaintiffs’ bar calling a business's conduct into question. But, those days are long gone.

Public and private companies investigated by the United States federal government are also subject to local, state, and foreign governments. Self-regulating entities add an additional layer of scrutiny. Under the insulation of the attorney-client privilege, an effective internal investigation helps marshal the facts. These facts enable informed corporate decisions regarding past or existing violations. Internal investigations also prevent potential future violations.

An internal investigation can

  • protect management from the violation and
  • record the company's response to an incident or violation.

However, most importantly, it serves to send a clear message. Internal investigations show a company is serious about compliance and sets transparency as a priority.

This webinar surveys recent compliance trends. It also discusses best practices regarding

  • the attorney-client privilege,
  • joint defense agreements,
  • the use of experts,
  • witness interviews,
  • the consequences of self-disclosure and
  • how to control the impact on the company.

Each episode is delivered in Plain English understandable to business owners and executives without a background in these areas. Yet, it is proven to be valuable to seasoned professionals. Each episode in the series brings you into engaging, sometimes humorous, conversations.

Every Financial Poise webinar is designed to entertain as it teaches. And, every Financial Poise episode in a series is designed to be viewed independently of the other episodes. Participants will enhance their knowledge of this area whether they attend one, some, or every episode.
