Enforcement Edge Goes to Miami: Covering the ABA White Collar Crime Conference
This week, the ABA’s White Collar Crime Conference will be back in person in Miami after last year’s conference was cancelled due to COVID and then rescheduled to a virtual conference. But the conference is back in person this week, and Enforcement Edge plans to be there in force.
We know that many regulars won’t be able to make it this year because of the pandemic, and of course we will miss seeing everyone at the panels (and during the inevitable crawls between various firm-sponsored cocktail parties). But never fear: We have a good number from Arnold & Porter’s White Collar Defense & Investigations group attending. And, to help out those at home, we plan to live-blog the event, offering daily coverage of the latest insights from federal prosecutors, government regulators, the white collar defense bar, and the federal judiciary.
We expect this year’s conference to cover increased enforcement arising from the Biden Administration’s stated enforcement priorities, as well as federal law enforcement’s return to knocking on doors and interviewing witnesses. Major topics will be the administration’s newly-announced anticorruption efforts, which include designating the fight against foreign corruption as a national security imperative; civil and criminal antitrust enforcement actions; the False Claims Act and healthcare fraud enforcement; the expected surge in enforcement given the size and scope of government spending over the last 18 months; and of course the perennial ethics issues arising in white collar investigations and prosecutions.
Join us this week for our special coverage of the ABA’s White Collar Crime Conference. If you have any questions, please reach out to the authors or any of the A&P Enforcement Edge conference blogging team, which includes Marcus Asner, Paul Fishman, Andre Geverola, Jonathan Green, Valarie Hays, David Hibey, Amanda Claire Hoover, Michael Krouse, John Nassikas, and Kirk Ogrosky. And for those of you who will be in Miami, we’ll see you there!
