The 2018 midterm elections were historic, altering the makeup of Congress to now include the most women in history and flipping the House of Representatives from a Republican to a Democratic majority. With a Democratic majority in the House, investigations might be launched into topics, such as: 
  • “Techlash”: data privacy, antitrust, the Internet of Things, “fake news,” platform liability
  • Drug pricing
  • Theft of trade secrets / economic espionage with a focus on China
  • Environmental protection and climate change
  • Use of executive authority by the White House and the Administration
So what do you do when Congress comes knocking? This panel will address best practices, legal and non-legal considerations when Congress investigates an industry, and how your clients should have a fundamental understanding of the similarities – and dissimilarities – between congressional investigations and other law enforcement investigations.

Partner Paul Rosen will participate as a panelist.
