  • Best practices in conducting internal investigations and responding to regulatory inquiries
  • Practical issues including data privacy, employment law and privilege
  • Strategic considerations including self-reporting and cooperation with U.S. regulators and implementation of remedial measures
  • Potential concurrent jurisdiction of European regulators
  • What are the EU implications for some of these rules and what are possible conflicts with local laws?
