Firm Event

The government has launched an investigation of one of your company’s business practices. You want to cooperate fully, but in such a way as to minimize the disruption to your business. Responding improperly may create another avenue for the government to pursue: obstruction of justice charges.

Join us on Thursday, November 2nd, for a discussion about how to identify and avoid obstruction of justice traps as your company responds to an investigation. Two distinguished panels will lead the discussion in a fast-paced examination of a “real-life” hypothetical.

Obstruction of justice traps will be addressed in a variety of contexts, including:

  • Communications to employees and the public
  • Representation of employees
  • Responding to grand jury subpoenas
  • Review and disclosure of documents
  • Witness interviews
  • Pre-indictment pleas

Panelists will include:

  • Rob Stapleton, Sr. Legal Counsel, MoneyGram International, Inc.
  • Tim Rank, Assistant U.S. Attorney, Chief of the Fraud and Public Corruption Section U.S. Department of Justice
  • Patrick Milan, Chief Insights Officer, Tunheim Partners
  • Jon Hopeman, Gray Plant Mooty
  • Marnie Fearon, Gray Plant Mooty
  • Eric Yaffe, Gray Plant Mooty
