Jenner & Block

Ethics and Compliance Officer Association

On June 12, 2008, from 1 to 2 p.m., Jenner & Block Partner Andrew Weissmann will lead a webinar sponsored by the Ethics and Compliance Officer Association to discuss the recently published The Ethics and Compliance Handbook: A Practical Guide From Leading Organizations.

In the webinar, Mr. Weissmann, along with Andrea Bonime-Blanc, an ECOA board member who is general counsel, chief compliance officer, and corporate secretary of Daylight Forensic & Advisory LLC, will provide a comprehensive look at many of the useful features of the new book.

The Handbook is a practical guide to the implementation of organizational ethics and compliance programs. The first-of-its-kind book was written over a period of eighteen months by leaders in the ethics and compliance field, and Jenner & Block was the sole law firm involved in the project. The goal of the Handbook is goal is to create an industry-wide standard for ethics and compliance programs, so that practitioners can consult the Handbook for guidance aand not simply rely on governmental pronouncements such as Chapter 8 of the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines.

Mr. Weissmann, Ms. Bonime-Blanc and Associate Matthew W. Alsdorf took a leadership role in originating, writing and editing of the Handbook.
