What is “Authorized Access” and How Do Employers Deal with Misuse of Access Credentials Post-VanBuren vs United States (02/03/2021)

Program Number: 3122 Presenter: Michelle A. Schaap, Esq.

As this summary is being written on December 1, 2020, the United States Supreme Court is considering the fate of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (“CFAA”) in Van Buren v. United States. CFAA had been used by employers in certain circuit courts successfully to hold employees accountable for misuse and/or misappropriation of employers’ data to which the employees were otherwise authorized to access in the course of their employment. At the time this program is presented, we expect the Court will have rendered its ruling in Van Buren. Regardless of the fate of the CFAA, employers can and should employ other means, statutorily, contractually, and technologically, to protect their trade secrets and other confidential and proprietary information from misuse, exfiltration and alteration. Moreover, for employers who are attorneys, they are ethically required to not only keep client information confidential, but to stay abreast technology that may facilitate the protection of

Weeding between the Ethical Lines: Cannabis and Conflicts (02/10/2021)

Program Number: 3120 Presenter: Dr. Sharon Meit Abrahams, Rachel K. Gillette, Esq., Jan L. Jacobowitz, Esq.

The Cannabis industry continues to grow not only increasing revenue and consumer use, but also creating issues throughout the country for lawyers advising clients. As the states continue to weave a patchwork quilt of cannabis regulations and the federal government continues to list cannabis as an illegal controlled substance, entrepreneurial clients need complex legal advice and lawyers need clear ethics advice on permissible representation of their clients. May a lawyer assist a client in establishing a dispensary? May the lawyer take an interest in a cannabis start up in lieu of fees? What are the tax implications for clients operating in multiple states? What are the possible repercussions for a lawyer using cannabis for recreational or medicinal purposes? These questions and more will inform this interesting and timely discussion.

The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act: For Small and Medium Size Businesses and Their Owners (01/21/2021)

Program Number: 3118 Presenter: Sixtine Bousquet-Lambert, Esq., Luke McGrath, Esq., Carolina Pineda-Martinez, Esq., Eden P. Quainton, Esq., Ludovico Rossi, Esq.

The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act is a major source of liability for US companies doing business abroad as well as for non-US companies with subsidiaries, listings or even transient contacts in the US. Many of the high-profile cases over the past decade have involved large multinationals such as Total, Alcatel, Eni and Tyson Foods. But the SEC and DOJ are increasingly turning their attention to individuals as a means of putting teeth in the FCPA. In addition, smaller companies have been caught in the cross-hairs of the US regulators and have faced fines reaching in the tens of millions of dollars—very significant amounts for smaller companies. Finally, the reputational risk associated with an SEC or DOJ enforcement action can permanently damage a company’s goodwill regardless of its size. As a result of the foregoing, small and medium sized businesses and their owners would be well advised to be

The Trouble with TikTok & Other Cautionary Foreign Investment Tales: Navigating the New CFIUS Landscape (02/19/2021)

Program Number: 3117 Presenter: David Hall, Esq., Tahlia Townsend, Esq.

As headline grabbing actions around TikTok, StaynTouch, Grindr, and PatientsLikeMe demonstrate, the risks associated with foreign investment in the U.S. have substantially increased. New regulations significantly tightened the rules governing overseas investment into U.S. businesses in 2020, dramatically expanding the circumstances in which pre-investment notification to the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) is either mandatory or recommended. This session will cover when foreign investments in the U.S. may trigger mandatory pre-transaction notification requirements, and when voluntary notification may be advisable; the impact of the recent increased focus on security of sensitive personal data; why understanding U.S. export controls is now essential to the CFIUS analysis; the key steps and timelines for making a CFIUS filing; the consequences of not making a filing when required or recommended; and key recommendations for investment due diligence and planning.
