Overview

The Steering Committee welcomes a select, international group of private client lawyers and white-collar criminal litigators. This meeting joins the two practice areas to explore how ultra-high net worth clients should best position themselves to avoid unnecessary investigations or regulatory enforcement actions. It also addresses how they can structure their affairs to provide optimal protection for themselves, their assets and their advisors.

Using candid, seminar-style discussion, the group identifies trends and developments in their varied jurisdictions for meaningful dialogue on the most pressing and provocative issues of the day.
