WMACCA Government Contractors Forum: Independent Monitors - How To Avoid Them and How To Live With Them
An independent monitor is not something that any company wants to have to deal with. This program will address key aspects of an effective corporate compliance program that can help your company avoid a monitorship, beginning with the concept of compliance risk assessments and how to accomplish effective risk assessments then make use of those assessments to strengthen a corporate compliance program. The panelists will also discuss steps that a company can take in the context of a government investigation or enforcement action to convince the regulator that a monitorship is not necessary. The panel will also address how monirorships can operate and what you should do to interact productively with a monitor if despite all best efforts a monitorship is imposed as part of the resolution of a criminal, civil, or administrative enforcement action by a U.S. government agency.
Presented by Iris Bennett and Sean J. Hartigan of Smith Pachter McWhorter PLC and an in-house panelist. Moderated by John Pachter of Smith Pachter McWhorter PLC.
