Jenner & Block Partner Andrew Weissman will be the featured speaker for a panel, “Ethics and Compliance - Post Enron,” at the Greater Houston Business Ethics Roundtable 3rd Quarter Meeting. Among other things, Mr. Weissman will speak about the current financial crisis, whether lessons were truly learned from the implosion of Enron or if the he current meltdown is a case of those who did not learn from history are doomed to repeat it, and what the government and business should do to “right the ship”.  

Mr. Weissmann is a co-chair of the Firm's White Collar Defense & Investigations practice.  He is a former Director of the Enron Task Force, Chief of the Criminal Division in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York, and Special Counsel to the Director of the FBI.  An internationally-recognized white collar litigator, Mr. Weissmann’s practice concentrates on internal corporate compliance and investigations, including representation before the Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission and state and local authorities.  He has tried numerous criminal and civil cases, including recently winning in an auction rate security case the largest FINRA arbitration award ever.
