Several panels will be held during the Annual Meeting on a wide range of topics including corporate compliance, the False Claims Act and internal investigations.
"eTERA is a second-time sponsor of the GICLI Annual Meeting because we believe delivering quality educational content to the legal community is extremely important," said Ashish Prasad, Co-Founder of the GICLI and eTERA's Vice President and General Counsel. "The GICLI Annual Meeting provides the knowledge and tools practitioners need to meet the challenges of government investigations, which is especially important in light of the increase in enforcement activity from federal regulatory agencies in recent years."
"CohnReznick is pleased to align with an organization that provides access to these industry leaders with the ability to provide insight on how to manage government investigations," said Vincenzo Toppi, CPA, CIRA, CFF, a director in CohnReznick Advisory. "In its second year, I am confident the GICLI will exceed expectations in providing attendees with the best practices to use when handling these unique and often complex cases."
The GICLI brings together experts from many diverse industries to discuss the evolving challenges faced in responding to government investigations. The Advisory board of the GICLI consists of several of the top leaders in the legal field who each share the same passion for educating the community about regulatory enforcement activities and civil litigation.
"We are seeing an uptick in government requests and investigations from our clients," said Patrick Oot, Co-Founder of the GICLI and Partner at Shook, Hardy and Bacon, LLP. "Because of the complexity and volume of these cases, we believe it necessary for in-house counsel to prepare themselves with best practices and strategies to effectively manage investigations and minimize risk."
