Fact-finding in White Collar Criminal Prosecutions: When Prosecutors Go Too Far
February 10, 2010 5:30pm - 8:00pm
559 Nathan Abbott Way
Stanford Law School students and Rock Center affiliates are invited to join us for an evening panel discussion with Richard Marmaro, head of Skadden’s West Coast white collar defense practice and lead attorney in Ruehle, where a federal judge dismissed charges against defendants in the Broadcom backdating case, citing "shameful" prosecutorial misconduct and a lack of evidence. Professors Joe Grundfest and Robert Weisberg will join the panel.
The panel discussion will also focus on the implications of the plea bargaining process in white collar prosecutions, the influence of press coverage, the expense of conducting a defense in a complex white collar matter, and related topics.
Richard Marmaro is the head of Skadden’s West Coast SEC enforcement and white collar defense practice and has offices in Los Angeles and San Francisco. For almost 30 years, he has successfully defended individuals and corporations in all phases of complex civil, criminal and regulatory matters, including those involving allegations of insider trading, accounting and disclosure irregularities, stock option backdating, market manipulation, financial frauds, sexual harassment and wrongful termination. He also has conducted numerous internal corporate investigations for Fortune 500 companies, involving allegations of stock option backdating, insider trading, tax violations and corporate opportunity issues.
