Participants will understand their applicable ethical duties under the Model Rules and the Sarbanes Oxley Act of 2002, including when or if a “noisy withdrawal” is required; learn when and under what circumstances they can or should report to the Board or other governing body; and the role of internal investigations conducted by outside counsel, including potential risks and complexities for in-house counsel who may have been involved in the underlying fact pattern.
