MIAMI—Andrés Rivero will speak on two panels during the 2019 NAMWOLF Driving Diversity & Leadership Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana, on February 18. The International Law PAC panel entitled “CSI (New Orleans Style): The Corporate Scene Investigation of an International Scandal and the Pitfalls to Avoid Creating Another One,” will discuss several “aspects of international investigations that may trap the unwary lawyer and other corporate employees and potentially create renewed scandal for the investigation counsel or investigators.”
Rivero will also speak on the White Collar PAC panel entitled “In-House Counsel at Risk: Enforcement Actions Against Gatekeepers,” which will “examine recent SEC and DOJ enforcement actions against in-house counsel and compliance officers and provide guidance on how to reduce your exposure to such claims.”
