Partner Ted Banks served as co-moderator of an October 20, 2016 Today’s General Counsel Institute compliance and ethics forum in Chicago, backed up by Corinne Heggie and George Sax as discussion leaders. Mr. Banks and his fellow panelists engaged with over 80 practicing corporate compliance attorneys and administrators in a wide-ranging, all day discussion of compliance structures, special compliance problems, and best practices for compliance training, monitoring, and internal investigation.
Ms. Heggie led a discussion about training and challenges corporations face when reducing practices into a written format that is practical and manageable for employees to use.
Mr. Sax, speaking from a litigator’s perspective, discussed best practices for document preservation and anticipation of discovery, and compliance with state social media laws. Scharf Banks Marmor LLC will continue to monitor developments in corporate compliance and ethics and related litigation, including any amendments that may arise from this or other roundtable discussions.
