Extract from Chuck Kellner’s article “Why Is Speed an Advantage in Regulatory Investigations?”
Regulatory investigations are on the rise, and for organizations looking for a strategic and tactical advantage, speed is key. That was one of the key takeaways from “The Regulator Always Rings Twice: Responding to a Government Request,” a CLE panel hosted by Everlaw at New York LegalWeek on March 9th. Expert practitioners in financial services and healthcare gave us their takes on trends, best practices, and ways to mitigate risk in government investigations.
We thank panelists Krista Ellis from Credit Agricole CIB, Briordy Meyers from Boehringer-Ingelheim, Aaron C. Mahler from Buckley LLP, and moderator Shana Simmons from Everlaw for your time, thoughtfulness, and dedication in bringing their important messages to the session.
Across topics, an overarching theme emerged: there are significant advantages to a swift response and efficient workflow in responding to regulatory requests.
As state and federal agencies press down on activities around technology, privacy and data breach, consumer lending, and employee relations, just to name a few, every regulated or publicly-traded company feels the pinch.
