Steven Feldman is a panalist for “Ripped from the Headlines: Managing Environmental Investigations, Regulatory Enforcement Actions, and Criminal Inquiries,” a Corporate Counsel sponsored event at the Environmental Compliance and Commitment Legal Summit.
This panel will walk through a hypothetical situation with the audience where parties identify and then must address a potentially significant environmental compliance issue. This thought exercise will bear a completely coincidental resemblance to a recent news feature. Discussion points will include:
- How to conduct an internal investigation (structuring the investigation, working with your team, providing professional and ethical representation)
- How to manage the issue with respect to regulators (do you report it, and other practical and ethical issues that arise in the context of government investigations)
- How to avoid these types of situations to begin with (structuring your internal environmental compliance team)
