Jenner & Block Partner Anthony S. Barkow will speak at Neither Admit Nor Deny: Corporate Crime in the Age of Deferred Prosecutions, Consent Decrees, Whistleblowers & Monitors, a conference sponsored by Corporate Crime Reporter.  Entitled “Deferred and Non-Prosecution Agreements,” Tony’s panel will include, among other members, Denis McInerney, the deputy assistant attorney general of the Criminal Division of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ).  Panelists will examine the federal government’s increasing use of deferred and non-prosecution agreements to settle major corporate crime matters and the ensuing criticism of the practice.  Mythili Raman, acting assistant attorney general of the DOJ’s Criminal Division, will be the conference’s keynote speaker, and John Buretta, the Division’s principal deputy assistant attorney general and chief of staff, will join an afternoon panel.  George Canellos, deputy director of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Enforcement Division, will also join an afternoon panel.  The conference will be held May 3 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. 

Tony is a member of the White Collar Defense and Investigations Practice.  A former federal prosecutor in Manhattan and Washington, D.C., he was involved in some of the most significant international terrorism and white collar criminal cases in the country and prosecuted a variety of other crimes including homicides, international narcotics trafficking, domestic violence, sexual abuse, drugs, guns and securities fraud.
