Program Number: 3150 Presenter: Thomas D. Bever, Esq., Amy E. Buice, Esq., Matthew W. Clarke, Esq., Anthony L. Cochran, Esq.

It will be ironic if Donald J. Trump is not prosecuted because of his First Amendment protections, but the rioters (who did exactly what they thought Trump wanted them to do) are prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Did Donald J. Trump incite a riot? Did his words give the rioters a defense based on his apparent authority as the President of the United States and the Commander in Chief? What are all of the criminal, civil and employment consequences for the rioters? What can employers of the rioters and protesters do?

Over the past year, industries all over the world have experienced disruptions and have been forced to adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Additionally, Operation Warp Speed has been an impressive scientific endeavor, helping to bring vaccines to market in record time. As FDA has adapted quickly to the most up to date knowledge about this novel virus and changing scientific data, including real world evidence, what is in store for 2021?

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

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.
