Is Financial Crime Going Viral? Money Laundering, Fraud and Ponzi Schemes in the Pandemic Era (01/26/2021)

Program Number: 3136 Presenter: Ross S. Delston, Timothy Dunfey, Esq.

Financial crime is a constant whatever the era but in times of crisis criminals become even more creative. Coronavirus ‘cures’, PPEs, testing and vaccines all present attractive opportunities for fraudsters to take advantage of our collective anxiety by selling fakery. Ponzi schemes, a ubiquitous phenomenon, often come to light in times of financial crisis since old investors demand redemption and new investors are hard for fraudsters to find. Finally, in the pandemic, trade-based money laundering, another common criminal scheme, can be used to greater effect due to price gyrations and scarcity in previously available goods and commodities. Learning Objectives: • Distinctions between and among different types of fraud, money laundering and other financial crime; • How to recognize commonly used financial crime schemes; • Why red flags are crucial to legal practitioners in banking, securities, contract, M&A, and consumer fields; Topics are targeted to attorneys in the regulatory, compliance, litigation and criminal

Trademark Counterfeiting in 2021 (02/17/2021)

Program Number: 3135 Presenter: Anthony F. Lo Cicero, Esq.

The old tactics of anticounterfeiting enforcement against street vendors and flea market operators have largely been replaced with online takedown notices, mass litigations against unnamed defendants and border enforcement. On the flip side, the “counterfeiting” label is being applied to activities different from what we have seen in the past, as reflected in the Second Circuit’s decision in Tiffany & Co. v. Costco Wholesale Corp. and elsewhere. Join Tony Lo Cicero, Managing Partner of Amster, Rothstein & Ebenstein as he discusses these developments and their likely impact for the future.

The Law of Insider Trading: Why It Is Such a Mess (05/05/2020)

Program Number: 3085 Presenter: Tai H. Park, Esq.

This program will explain the principles of the insider trading law under Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act and describe why it has proven to be so difficult to apply consistently. In recent years, the underlying, conceptual problem in the law was highlighted when judges of the Second Circuit sharply disagreed with each other in two high profile cases. In U.S. v. Newman, a unanimous panel reversed the conviction after trial of two hedge fund portfolio managers, declaring that their alleged insider trading conduct was in fact not illegal. Just a few years later, in U.S. v. Martoma, a different panel of Second Circuit judges affirmed the conviction of another portfolio manager as it disagreed with the thrust of the Newman opinion. A dissenting judge in Martoma wrote a vigorous dissent accusing the majority of flatly contradicting Newman. This split remains unresolved. In a new Second Circuit

The Six Stages of Trade Secret Misappropriation Protection (11/18/2020)

Program Number: 30246 Presenter: David L. Cohen, Esq., Michael J. Kasdan, Esq. - Wiggin and Dana LLP, Donal O'Connell

This presentation examines considerations for an effective trade secret asset management through the prism of trade secret misappropriation, examining how to approach the question of what to protect as a trade secret and how and whether a company would safeguard and enforce its IP if there were a misappropriation. There are six sequential stages of consideration: Recognition, Detectability, Provability, Specificity, Correlation, and Mitigation. (Any similarity to “The Six Stages of Grief” is purely coincidental. In fact, following these six stages is designed to avoid grief on the part of the trade secret holder when the time arises to pursue a claim of trade secret misappropriation.)
