Financial Poise™ Webinars and West LegalEdcenter are pleased to announce the July 24th premiere of a new webinar, Defending White Collar Crime-101, which helps companies detect, prevent, and react to white collar criminal acts.

CHICAGO (PRWEB) July 20, 2018

For those in law school, three years seems like a lifetime. But for JDs, law school memories are just a blur. And while law school provides a great foundation, there are so many things it does not teach. The Financial Poise webinar series LAWYERING MADE EASY 2018 provides lawyers, business professionals, or anyone interested in the law, with some specialized learning in four distinct areas of law.

The second episode of the series, Defending White Collar Crime-101, airs on July 24th at 1:00 PM CST (Register Here) and features Moderator Cristina Nolan of Financial Poise. She is joined by Phil Bezanson of Bracewell LLP, Derek Cohen of Goodwin Procter, and Nancy DePodesta of Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr LLP.

While white collar crimes don't usually carry the same stigma or penalties as violent crime, the consequences of a conviction, or even an allegation can be devastating. Leaving prison time aside, the business may also face investigation, prosecution and possibly, the risk of reputational damage, financial loss and unwanted exposure.

As governmental enforcement of laws against those accused of white collar crime increases, companies need to understand how to avoid unknowingly acting in ways that may be unlawful, how to prevent and detect potential employee misconduct, and how to react if misconduct does occur.

The LAWYERING MADE EASY 2018 webinar series is produced by Financial Poise.™ Future episodes in the series include "Doing Business Abroad-101" airing on August 28th and "Foreign Corrupt Practices Act-101," airing on October 2nd. Each episode airs at 1:00 PM CST. All episodes premiere live through West LegalEdCenter and then are made available on-demand.

As with every Financial Poise Webinar, each episode is delivered in Plain English understandable to investors, business owners, and executives without much background in these areas, yet is also valuable to attorneys, accountants, and other seasoned professionals. And, as with every Financial Poise Webinar, each episode brings you into engaging, sometimes humorous, conversations designed to entertain as it teaches. Each episode in the series is designed to be viewed independently of the other episodes, so that participants will enhance their knowledge of this area whether they attend one, some, or all episodes.
