Cercle Montesquieu and University of Cergy-Pontoise

Jenner & Block Partner Andrew Weissmann will be the guest speaker at two conferences in Paris, one at the Cercle Montesquieu, the second at the University of Cergy-Pontoise conference, both to be held on October 22, 2008 in Paris, France.

Mr. Weissmann will first address a conference attended by corporate counsel and executives in France, which will focus on cross border investigations.

Mr. Weissmann will then speak abut the Enron prosecution at a conference held at the University of Cergy-Pontoise for the students and faculty of the University’s “Law and Business Ethics” Masters Degree Program.  The Masters Degree program, which was launched in September, is the first of its kind in Europe.  L’OREAL is the sponsor of the program’s first class.

Mr. Weissmann, the former Enron Task Force Director and former Chief of the Criminal Division in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York, was recently selected by a panel of top ethics experts as one of the 100 Most Influential People in Business Ethics by Ethisphere magazine. 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.
