Colleen A. Conry
Ryan Rohlfsen

On May 19, 2020 at 1 pm EDT, Momentum will host a live video conference on the changing enforcement landscape and compliance risks presented by COVID-19. The invited panelists are Charles Cain, FCPA Unit Chief, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Dan Kahn, Senior Deputy Chief, U.S. Department of Justice Criminal Division - Fraud Section, Glenn Leon, Deputy General Counsel, Chief Ethics & Compliance Officer, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, and Ryan Rohlfsen, co-chair of Ropes & Gray’s anti-corruption and international risk practice. Colleen Conry, who serves as the managing partner of Ropes & Gray’s Washington, D.C. office, will moderate the discussion.

Key topics for discussion include:

  • Enforcement Priorities. COVID-19 has caused significant disruption to the economy, industries, and daily life. The response has included unprecedented levels of government spending, both domestic and abroad, and pivots by businesses to new markets and realities. We will discuss how companies and enforcers are adapting to this shifting landscape, and what trends are emerging.
  • Managing Investigations and Compliance Challenges in Remote Work Environments. Government and internal corporate investigations alike are facing significant hurdles as a result of travel and meeting restrictions due to COVID-19. New challenges exist in gathering data, conducting interviews, and overseeing investigations. At the same time, in-person compliance monitoring, training, and related activities have ground to a halt. We will discuss the new realities of remote working and how this impacts the approach to investigations and compliance practices.
  • Long-Term Impact from COVID-19. Will there be a permanent shift in the way we conduct business or manage investigations when the global economy reopens? We will discuss the potential lasting impact from current changes that are being implemented by regulators and companies alike.

The virtual conference is from 1 pm – 2 pm ET. To register visit:
