The Perfect Storm Spawns a New Era of Whistleblower Activity (Silicon Valley)

The Garden Court Hotel, 520 Cowper Street, Palo Alto, CA

February 7 2013, 8:00 AM - 10:30 AM (UTC-08:00) Pacific Time (US & Canada) (GMT-8:00)

The first cash bounty paid to a Dodd-Frank's whistleblower by the SEC’s Whistleblowers Office, along with significant pro-whistleblower legal developments in the interpretation of SOX and Dodd-Frank protections for whistleblowers, have led to a dramatic increase in whistleblower claims and threats to file claims. The impact of these changes is being felt by companies around the globe as they struggle to encourage internal reporting despite the incentives for whistleblowers to bypass such disclosure.

Join the National Association of Corporate Directors, Silicon Valley and Northern California chapters, Orrick and Deloitte for a CLE program that will provide a multi-disciplinary approach to the challenges faced by companies in this environment, with perspectives from litigation, corporate governance, finance, securities law, and employment law professionals. Additionally, the program will highlight what you need to know to effectively represent your firm on whistleblower matters and best practices to counsel the firm proactively.
