Christopher D. Adams, Chair of the firm’s Criminal Defense & Regulatory Compliance Practice Group, will be a panelist at the “2022 White Collar Crime Symposium,” to be presented by the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education (NJICLE) on Wednesday, May 25, 2022 from 9:00am – 1:00pm at the New Jersey Law Center.
The program, co-sponsored by the NJSBA’s Criminal Law Section, is a gathering of leading New Jersey practitioners and experts who will discuss four of the current hot topics in white-collar crime. The agenda for this well-timed insightful discussion of important developments and trends in the law of white-collar crime will address the following issues:
- Pandemic related fraud - a look at cases and situations involving parties who fraudulently obtained money through the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) program, and Unemployment Insurance (UI) program
- Cryptocurrency - the mega universe, cryptocurrency, and white-collar crime issues
- Cyber issues - handling cases involving cyber hacking and cyber breaches
- Sentencing - The pandemic has changed the federal sentencing landscape, and it has changed it at the state level too, perhaps even more dramatically. This panel will discuss some of these changes and the ability of white-collar crime defendants to predict their exposure in state and federal court
- Plus - a judicial perspective
Mr. Adams, a partner in the Litigation and Healthcare Departments, concentrates his practice in the areas of criminal defense, internal investigations, attorney ethics matters and disciplinary proceedings, and complex commercial litigation. With a demonstrated track record of success in taking on difficult matters, he has tried cases in state and federal courts throughout the country.
