Joan McKown, a Securities Litigation & SEC Enforcement partner resident in the Firm's Washington Office, will speak on ethical issues pertaining to various hedge fund hypotheticals at PLI's Hedge Fund and Private Equity Enforcement & Regulatory Developments 2022 program.

The program's agenda reflects the current regulatory priorities faced by attorneys and will help private funds and their in-house and outside counsel prepare for the coming wave of government investigations and regulatory examinations. Panels will feature perspectives from senior government enforcement lawyers, prosecutors, and compliance examiners, together with experienced in-house general counsel, chief compliance officers, and outside counsel.

The faculty will deliver insights on the latest government priorities, first-hand experiences from the front lines, as well as strategies to deal with evolving regulatory priorities and challenges. Attendees will not only gain a better understanding of what is actually going on in the industry, but also will learn what they need to do now and what to anticipate in the coming months.

The program will also address the challenging ethical issues that frequently arise when overseeing the legal and compliance function or advising clients in the private fund sector, including the scope of the attorney-client privilege in the context of compliance, and managing the response to whistleblower complaints.
