Ted Banks Featured Twice in Business Law Today on Compliance Issues

Partner Ted Banks was featured twice as an author in the June issue of Business Law Today, published by the American Bar Association Section of Business Law, as part of its mini-theme: The Many Faces of Compliance.  His article “Five Things to Think About Before You Give That Compliance Presentation,” discusses the importance of doing live compliance presentations well – and the damage that can be done as a result of poor preparation.   He was co-author with James Lord on the article, “Compliance Programs, Individual Liability, and the Yates Memo: Has Anything Changed?”  This article discusses the implications for compliance programs of the memorandum issued by Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates that called on federal prosecutors to focus on individual prosecutions, and not allow culpable individuals to hide behind a company conviction or plea agreement.   Copies of the articles are available by contacting Ted Banks at Tbanks@scharfbanks.com.
