Launch of the IFSEA LinkedIn Group and Anatomy of a Cross-Border Misconduct Investigation Podcast

We are delighted to bring you the reflections of a multi-disciplinary panel of leading US, Canadian and UK experts on how to handle the legal, regulatory, investigatory and PR aspects of a cross-border investigation into allegations of serious wrongdoing by an international senior executive.

This is a recording from the Anatomy of a Cross-Border Investigation post-session panel discussion at the February 2020 International Forum of Senior Executive Advisers (IFSEA) Conference. Listen here.

You can also join the new LinkedIn group of the International Forum, where you can access other recordings on international senior executive and founder issues from the IFSEA conference, share information and network with other specialist advisers from around the world.

This podcast was recorded in February 2020 at the International Conference on Risk, Reward and Reputation Management Issues for Senior Executives and Founders in London, organised by the International Forum of Senior Executive Advisers (IFSEA). The recording followed a role-play session in which the audience were treated to a fictional senior executive (Mr Smith) being investigated following allegations of serious misconduct. The session effectively looked at the dos and don’ts for senior executives facing such allegations. 

In this 15 minute podcast, the international panel debates:

1. What are the legal and practical considerations from the US point of view when advising a Senior Executive facing allegations of serious misconduct?

2. What criminal and regulatory considerations are there for senior executives in cooperating – or not – with an investigation?

3. What PR strategies are there in circumstances where a senior executive is facing potentially extremely damaging allegations?

4. Internal vs external investigators?

5. How does privilege apply in investigations undertaken by lawyers, and what are the differences between the US and the UK in this regard?

Podcast Panel: 

Nick Hawkins and Sarah Chilton (both CM Murray LLP, UK), and Neil Swift (Peters and Peters LLP, UK) are joined by Jonathan Cohen QC (Littleton Chambers, UK), Simon Eaton (Crofton Communications, UK), Nicholas Surmacz (Kobre & Kim LLP UK/USA), Hannah Laming (Peters and Peters LLP, UK), and Thomas Hanusik (Crowell & Moring LLP, USA).
