Eric Tunis, a Litigation Department partner at Greenbaum, Rowe, Smith & Davis LLP and member of the firm’s White Collar Defense Practice Group, will participate in a webcast addressing “White Collar Crime Enforcement Issues” on Tuesday, July 17, 2012 from 12:00pm - 2:00pm (ET). The program is being produced by The Knowledge Congress, a provider of live webcasts which examine trends, regulatory, and technology issues across a variety of industries.
Mr. Tunis’ segment of the webcast will explore the issues of pre-trial publicity, “right to honest services” prosecutions, vagueness doctrine and its implications with regard to state official misconduct prosecutions, and double jeopardy issues that arise out of multiple theories of prosecution for the same conduct - cast within the framework of the Enron bankruptcy and subsequent trial, conviction and appeals of former Enron chief executive Jeffrey Skilling.
A number of the country’s leading white collar defense attorneys will join Mr. Tunis as faculty for the webcast. John F. Libby of Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP; Michael W. Emmick of Law Offices of Michael W. Emmick, Eli J. Richardson of Bass, Berry & Sims; and Justin V. Shur of Molo Lamken LLP will cover a broad range of topics related to white collar criminal litigation during the two-hour webcast.
