Evelyn Sheehan on the Criminalization of the Private Client Profession with LegalWeek
February 5, 2020
Kobre & Kim’s Evelyn Sheehan will discuss the criminalization of the profession and the erosion of attorney-client privilege alongside a panel of fellow practitioners during LegalWeek’s Private Client Forum Americas, taking place in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, on February 7.
The panel, entitled “End of the Innocence: Behind bars: The criminalization of the profession and erosion of the attorney-client privilege,” will also explore policy makers’ and law enforcement’s increased scrutiny of attorneys’ role in financial crime, as the rising interest in “gatekeepers” has coincided with a general rise in enforcement. Ms. Sheehan, a former U.S. federal prosecutor that focuses her practice on advising institutional clients and their executives in cross-border investigations, will offer her insights on the above topics and other critical issues facing the world’s leading private client advisors.
