Topic: Federal Investigations: Responding to Subpoenas and Civil Investigative Demands
How do federal investigations begin? What is a civil investigative demand? What initial steps are important when a client receives a subpoena? How can a client respond within the tight deadlines that often comes with these demands? Paralegals who understand the process involved in federal investigations can be invaluable to their legal teams in ensuring the beginning stages of a federal investigation progress smoothly, regardless of the client’s potential for liability. Using real-to-life examples, this seminar will explore the difference between criminal subpoenas and civil investigative demands, what it means for a client to be a “target”, a “subject”, or a “witness” to the investigation, and how members of the legal team can efficiently and effectively help gather and produce responses to federal demands for information.
