Upcoming Program - ABA Section of Litigation

Criminal Litigation Committee of the ABA's Section of Litigation has several upcoming programs, April 21-23, 2010, at the New York Hilton, See here for details. The programs are:

(1) Ethical Pitfalls - What Every Civil Practitioner Needs to Know About Criminal Issues in Civil Litigation

Date: Thursday, April 22, 2010

Time: 4:00 – 5:15 PM

Our panel of experts will discuss key issues that civil practitioners should be familiar with when faced with parallel civil and criminal proceedings against corporations, executives, or individuals. Many civil practitioners assume that the engagement process, conflicts, joint defense agreements and internal investigations can be done the same way in a criminal investigation as in a civil investigation-- but they cannot. Don't fall prey to these common traps! This program is a must for any civil litigator whose clients may face investigation or indictment in a criminal matter. Our panel will include:

The Honorable Cormac J. Carney, U.S. District Court Judge for the Central District of California

Prof. Bruce A. Green, the Chair-Elect of the ABA Criminal Justice Section

Jane W. Moscowitz, Moscowitz & Moscowitz PA

James W. Cooper, Arnold & Porter

Stacey F. Gottlieb, Greenberg Traurig LLP

(2) Conducting Internal Investigations and Making Voluntary Disclosures: Is it Worth the Risk?

Date: Thurs, April 22, 2010

Time: 1:00-2:15 PM

Corporations have long undertaken their own internal investigations for purposes of getting an internal handle on potential exposure with respect to government inquiries and related compliance issues. Our panel of experts will provide in-house and outside counsel perspectives on the do's and don'ts of internal investigations, the risks and benefits associated with voluntarily disclosing the existence and results of internal investigations and the ethical issues involved. Our experienced panel will include:

Michele Roberts, Akin Gump

Eric Grossman, General Counsel Morgan Stanley

Faith Gay, Quinn Emmanuel

Joathan Polkes, Weil Gotshal

Moderated by Matthew Mustokoff, Barroway Topaz

(3) Arguing Crime/Fraud and Other Exceptions to Privilege: An Expert Demonstration

(co-sponsored by the ABA's Trial Practice Committee)

Date: Friday, April 23, 2010

Time: 4:00-5:15 PM

Assertions of privilege in litigation are not always justified or insurmountable. Using multimedia presentations, live expert demonstrations, judicial commentary and audience participation, this program will show you how to develop and present winning arguments for application of the crime/fraud and other exceptions to privilege.

Amy Jane Longo O’Melveny & Myers
