PLI Publishes 11th Edition of Kaye Scholer’s Deskbook on Internal Investigations, Corporate Compliance and White Collar Issues

Contains updates on export control reform, warrantless searches of digital devices, and much more

New York: Kaye Scholer announces that the 11th biannual update of the Deskbook on Internal Investigations, Corporate Compliance and White Collar Issues is now available.

Published by Practising Law Institute (PLI), the nation’s leading provider of continuing legal education, the Deskbook comes at a time when companies are under greater legal scrutiny than ever before. Executives and their legal counsel need practical, plain-English guidance on how to avoid potentially disastrous mistakes.

Authored by members of Kaye Scholer’s highly regarded White Collar Litigation & Internal Investigations Practice, highlights from the latest edition include:

  • Discussion of this year’s implementation by the Obama Administration of long-awaited export control reforms and how the new rules affect the prosecution of export control violations
  • Analysis of a recent Ninth Circuit holding on whether the government may perform warrantless searches of digital devices at border crossings, including forensic analysis of the hard drive, unlocking password-protected files and restoring deleted files
  • Exploration of how the various Circuit Courts are currently split on the question of whether a grand jury subpoena supersedes a protective order
  • Discussion of how courts interpret the definition of “bona fide purchaser” in the context of civil forfeitures of assets
