White Collar Crime Seminar Comes to Chicago

March 5, 2003

A seminar in Chicago will examine the impact of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 on corporations, their officers, directors and employees, and insurance coverage.

The seminar on white collar crime is hosted by DRI, a national organization of defense trial lawyers and corporate counsel. Though primarily targeted at attorneys, the seminar is also relevant to insurance professionals, according to a DRI statement.

The Sarbanes-Oxley Act was signed into federal law in response to the Enron, WorldCom and GlobalCrossing accounting scandals.

DRI says attendees will learn what the new law requires of corporations, the collateral consequences of criminal convictions for corporations, officers and directors, and when insurance coverage is available for attorney fees and costs associated with criminal investigations.

The seminar is scheduled for April 3-4, 2003.
