Overview (Program Summary)
The trillions of federal dollars being spent under the CARES Act – much of which is flowing through US financial institutions – are sure to be the subject of federal and state investigations for years to come. This program will look at the enforcement landscape for financial institutions in the wake of the CARES Act. Any businesses that participated in, or received relief from, the funding programs under the Act, including the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), will benefit from this presentation.
• Lessons from the last major government lending effort – the 2008 Troubled Asset Relief Program – which led to thousands of enforcement actions, some of which are still being prosecuted today
• What we can learn from recent investigative priorities of the SEC, DOJ and state AGs
• The extent and limits of the CARES Act’s protections for financial institutions and businesses that received relief
