  • Navigating Dodd-Frank’s Whistleblower Provisions and the FCPA (2016 Update) Navigating Dodd-Frank’s Whistleblower Provisions and the FCPA (2016 Update) Patrick F. Stokes, Sean X. McKessy, F. Joseph Warin, John W.F. Chesley, Erika A. Kelton, Jim Barratt Recorded: Jan 18 2017 97 mins
    The word is out—the SEC has made good on its promise to pay millions of dollars in awards to those who come forward with evidence of securities law violations and employees are taking notice. For the fifth consecutive year, 2016 saw the number of tips flowing into the SEC Office of the Whistleblower reach a record high, including a new high for complaints of FCPA violations. In 2016, the SEC awarded to whistleblowers over $57 million—higher than the combined award amount from all previous years.

    Meanwhile, the SEC’s Division of Enforcement brought multiple enforcement actions to discourage what it views as overly restrictive employee severance and confidentiality agreements as well as an unprecedented stand-alone enforcement action against an employer for allegedly retaliating against a whistleblower employee. In addition, federal courts across the nation continue to reach disparate conclusions concerning the scope of Dodd-Frank’s whistleblower retaliation provisions. These trends, coupled with dynamic developments in FCPA enforcement, provide the perfect storm for keeping in-house counsel and compliance professionals up at night.

    The panel discussing these developments will include Patrick F. Stokes of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher and Sean X. McKessy of Phillips & Cohen, respectively the former chiefs of DOJ’s FCPA Unit and the SEC’s Office of the Whistleblower. Joined by co-panelists F. Joseph Warin and John W.F. Chesley of Gibson Dunn, Erika A. Kelton of Phillips & Cohen, and Jim Barratt of FTI Consulting, this free 90-minute webcast will include a dynamic and participatory discussion on Dodd-Frank’s statutory and regulatory framework, discuss its early and recent interpretations by the SEC Office of the Whistleblower and federal courts, analyze the statute’s intersection with the FCPA, and provide participants with practical tips for navigating the minefield of whistleblower complaints.

  • Moving away from the C-corporation: understanding Reits, MLPs, PTPs and BDCs Moving away from the C-corporation: understanding Reits, MLPs, PTPs and BDCs Thomas Humphreys and Remmelt Reigersman, Morrison & Foerster; Tom Young, IFLR Recorded: Nov 30 2016 89 mins
    Traditionally, most public companies in the US were organised as C-corporations. However, tax developments in recent years have given corporate planners a wide range of new tools to structure a public company. For example, tax pass-through MLP and Reit structures are spreading into new asset classes. Also, traditional double taxed ‘C’ corporations are using tax pass-through entities, including partnerships, to reduce or eliminate entity-level taxes as well as optimise their internal structures with tax ‘disregarded entities’. These new tools lead to a variety of tax choices in deciding how to structure a public company.

    During this briefing, which is intended for a general audience, the speakers will explain the structures, restrictions and pitfalls in this evolving hybrid world of C-corporations mixed with tax pass-throughs. Specifically, they will discuss:

    •Master limited partnerships;
    •Reits and alternative assets that may qualify as ‘real estate’;
    •Business development companies;
    •Consolidated groups of corporations and disregarded entities; and
    •Up-C structures.

  • Boosting consumer engagement with next gen chat bots Boosting consumer engagement with next gen chat bots Peter Wannemacher, Senior analyst, Forrester Research Recorded: Nov 9 2016 61 mins
    Stop implementing; start planning. Forrester Research shows that while messaging platform chatbots can be effective, the customer experience is too often unacceptably poor. And while it’s not a big deal when you’re ordering a pizza, the stakes are far too high for financial institutions to go all in on this generation’s chatbot technology without the right planning.

    Simply put, being too early can be the same as being wrong. Bots are only as good as the systems behind them — outdated architecture and poor integration can sabotage your services and drive away customers.

    But given bot technologies are shaping up to be an essential part of the FI and fintech mix, your next two to three years should be devoted to investing in foundational digital initiatives that will position you to leverage the future that’s coming fast.

    Join this free VB Live event to learn how to reap the rewards of future fintech AI innovation — and get it right the first time.

  • The Ability-to-Pay Defense: A Strategy for Reducing Criminal Fines The Ability-to-Pay Defense: A Strategy for Reducing Criminal Fines Seth Farber, Trey Nicoud, Basil Imburgia, Jeff Litvak Recorded: Oct 26 2016 82 mins
    In recent years, criminal fines and penalties have risen drastically as a result of price-fixing and bid-rigging conspiracies uncovered among automotive parts manufacturers. While companies face these mounting fines, they need not accept the fine initially imposed. The United States Sentencing Guidelines do allow for a reduction of a criminal fine based on a company’s inability to pay. This webcast seeks to inform practitioners on the considerations of this ability-to-pay defense, strategies and process. As an illustration, this webcast includes a case study analyzing a company’s ability to pay a fine resulting from antitrust violations; however, the described methodology has other applications. Additional arenas where this defense has relevance include environmental clean-up costs, healthcare fraud, securities and commodities fraud, as well as FCPA and sanctions violations.

    The session will provide insight into the financial analyst’s role in evaluating the company’s financial status and the basis of the framework for the ability-to-pay argument. As part of the case study, the session will walk through an ability-to-pay model including analysis of projected free cash flow and the strength of the company’s balance sheet. Lastly, the session will address the importance of the financial expert’s role in discussions with the DOJ and its financial expert.

    With markets growing in complexity, stock surveillance providers claim to help IROs even the playing field, giving them timely intelligence on buying and selling, market sentiment and potential dangers like activist activity in their stock.

  • The Future of Financial Services – Utility vs Meaning The Future of Financial Services – Utility vs Meaning Justin Small, Chief Strategy Officer, The BIO Agency Mar 8 2017 10:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Uber, Nike and their like, have turned branding on its head. They have created utilitarian global brands by inserting themselves into our daily lives using technology as their Trojan horse. And through this utility they have invested more meaning into their brands than any global advertising campaign ever could. Utilitarianism is the innovation frontier for financial services. How do traditional financial service companies reconfigure and transform their capabilities to innovate around their customers' needs and rebuild their brand meaning through utility, instead of advertising.
