What It Now Takes to Successfully Defend Your Compliance Program to the Agencies: Leading Practitioners Share Key Takeaways and Concrete Examples of Unintended, Costly Missteps


Cooley partner Daniel Grooms will speak on this panel.

As enforcement actions rise, it is critical to develop and maintain a proactive and positive working relationship with the prosecutors in order to defend compliance programs to the agencies and highlight corrective actions that have already been implemented.

In this session, leading defense counsel will highlight the new realities of enforcement and share their experiences with the agencies, including:

  • Demonstrating that companies are designing and implementing effective compliance systems and controls.
  • Highlighting that the programs are “well designed” and work in practice.
  • Examining the processes for assessing risk and building a program that is tailored to match those resources to the specific risk profile.
  • Exploring how to truly know if your program is working – and when to sound the alarm.
  • Providing real-world examples and stories – and their compliance lessons.
