Overview (Program Summary)

A program hosted by:

ACC National Capital Region

In-house counsel are frequently required to coordinate internal investigations arising in a variety of contexts—from workplace issues, to whistleblower complaints, to investigations arising from government inquiries.  Regardless of the substantive issues involved, internal investigations can also be rife with ethical considerations, such as issues of preservation, employee representation, choosing the right investigators, and reporting findings of an investigation. 

This program will explore those issues through the lens of the Virginia Rules of Professional Responsibility, with a focus on how to address ethical concerns early on in anticipation of potential litigation and/or cooperation with a private adversary or government entity. 

Presented by Katie Trefz and Simon Latcovich, Partners at Williams & Connolly, Todd Braunstein, General Counsel (International); Global Head of Litigation/Investigations at WTW (formerly Willis Towers Watson), Zoe Poulson, VP, Regional Ethics & Compliance Leader, North America and Head of Global Anti-Bribery Programat Visa and Kate Smith, Counsel, Alphabet Regulatory Response, Investigations & Strategy at Google.
