The format is interactive and will allow attendees to learn best practices from their peers.

Among the specific topics offered are Federal Enforcement and Compliance; A View from the Trenches: Effective Communications and Training; The Role of the Board; Cross-Border Governance, Compliance and Regulatory Trends; When Something (Allegedly) Goes Wrong: From Receipt of a Concern Through Investigation;and Measuring the Effectiveness of Your Compliance Program.

Gruner, director, Center for Intellectual Property Law, professor of law, John Marshall Law School; and Christopher Mondini, senior manager, Forensic and Dispute Services, Deloitte Financial Advisory Services LLP.
