Crowell & Moring Partner Rebecca Ricigliano to Speak on Post-Disaster Enforcement

Washington – November 16, 2020: Rebecca Monck Ricigliano, partner in the White Collar and Regulatory Enforcement Group, will speak at the American Bar Association’s 2020 Public Procurement Symposium about enforcement issues after disasters. The virtual panel kicks off at 2 p.m. EST on Thursday, November 19. The symposium seeks to explore issues relevant to federal, state and local government contracting, including emerging issues and challenges that confront the public contracts sector.

The panel, entitled Enforcement Issues After Disasters, will address:

  • How federal & state enforcement matters arise following disasters.
  • Why contracting & enforcement after a disaster are not business-as-usual and require specific attention.
  • What to expect from enforcement officials after disasters.
  • Best practices for responding to enforcement inquiries.

Joining Ricigliano on the panel will be David Robbins, partner at Jenner & Block, and Jennifer Ward, director of suspension & debarment at FEMA’s Office of Chief Counsel.

Prior to joining Crowell & Moring, Ricigliano served as the First Assistant Attorney General of New Jersey, where she supervised complex criminal investigations and prosecutions and affirmative Consumer Fraud and False Claims Act cases. Ricigliano also served as an Assistant United States Attorney in the Southern District of New York, where she held various supervisory positions including Chief of the Narcotics Unit and Senior Trial Counsel in the Public Corruption Unit. She was also a member of the Securities and Commodities Fraud Task Force.

Throughout her career, Ricigliano has been recognized by her colleagues for her efforts, receiving the Federal Drug Agents Foundation True American Hero Award and the Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency Investigations Award for Excellence.

In addition to the upcoming ABA event, Ricigliano recently appeared on a panel for a Practicing Law Institute course on insider trading and the recent focus on enforcement, which is available online here.
