PLI Publishes 13th Edition of Kaye Scholer's Deskbook on Internal Investigations, Corporate Compliance & White Collar Issues

Highlights include recent developments related to multiple representations of witnesses, searches and seizures, and criminal investigations of pharmaceutical companies

New York: Kaye Scholer’s White Collar Litigation & Internal Investigations Practice recently released the 13th edition of its Deskbook on Internal Investigations, Corporate Compliance and White Collar Issues.

Published by Practising Law Institute (PLI), the nation’s leading provider of continuing legal education, the Deskbook provides practical information, comprehensive analysis and recent developments on corporate criminal and regulatory matters from leading experts in the field. It is updated biannually to reflect the latest court cases and actions, as well as new commentary and discussion on these developments.

Highlights of this update include:

  • Overview of how potential conflicts of interest between a company and an employee in an investigation can become actual conflicts of interest, and lead to the disqualification of defense counsel
  • Analysis of recent Supreme Court decisions relating to searches and seizures of evidence, particularly in regards to cell phone data
  • Discussion of the use of potentially forfeitable assets to retain and pay counsel
  • Developments related to the representation of drug and medical device manufacturers in criminal investigations, including the Food and Drug Administration’s much-anticipated social media guidance for pharmaceutical companies
  • Examination of the Department of Justice’s new, more defense-friendly policy related to the “false statements” statute
