Program Highlights include:

• The Administrative Proceeding Challenge: How Can You Effectively Fight on the SEC’s Home Court?
• Newman, High Frequency Trading–What Exactly Are the Limits of Securities Fraud?
• Whistleblower or Snitch? Pre-taliation, Retaliation and Multi-Million Dollar Awards

Thomas Hanusik is a member of the Planning Committee. He is Moderator on the topic: "2015: The Year in Review" - Insider trading prosecutions hit the wall, with convictions reversed, pleas withdrawn and inquiries dropped. The SEC goes industry-wide with a "pre-taliation" sweep focusing on preemptive strikes on potential future whistleblowers through non-disclosure agreements in employment contracts. Administrative proceedings continue to draw scrutiny as the SEC racks up a track record any trial lawyer would envy. And courts on the SEC continue to grapple with the limitations imposed by the Janus and Gabelli decisions. The top brass from the top enforcement agencies will discuss the successes and set-backs of 2015 and their priorities for 2016.

Dan Zelenko is a panelist on the topic: "The Internationalization of Securities Enforcement - Foreign and Domestic Regulators" - From FCPA, to ForEx, to LIBOR and beyond - what are the limits of the SEC's and DOJ's reach, and when do the consequences of foreign regulators come into play? What are the jurisdictional hooks? Extradition challenges? Evidentiary hurdles? The panel of experts will cover all these questions, and give advice on navigating the complexities of multi-jurisdictional and global investigations and litigation exposure.
