How Not to Become a White Collar Criminal

American Lawyer Media's Virtual Corporate Counsel Forum

Stuart Gasner, a senior partner at Keker & Van Nest LLP and former federal prosecutor, presents "How Not to Become a White Collar Criminal." Drawing on tales from fiction such as Tom Wolfe's "Bonfire of the Vanities" and real life such as the Raj Rajaratnam insider trading case, Mr. Gasner offers tips on writing and preserving e-mails, handling disgruntled employees, and dealing with prosecutors.

His key points include:

  • It's hard to tell what the next enforcement fad will be. Therefore, corporate executives need to think like prosecutors when they write e-mails.
  • Almost every white-collar criminal case has a disgruntled former employee at the center of it.
  • Prosecutors are not your best friends...most of the time.
