Jenner & Block Partners Stephen L. Ascher, Katya Jestin, Alex Lipman, William L. Tolbert, and Richard F. Ziegler will be participating in the Corporate Secretary East Coast Think Tank to be held May 7 at The Lotos Club in New York City.

Mr. Ziegler will be chairing a panel titled “Setting the Tone: New Techniques for Driving Effective Compliance Programs,” which will examine ethical goals.  He will be joined by Noah Hanft, general counsel and chief franchise officer of MasterCard Worldwide.  The discussion will focus on practical measures members of the board of directors can take to help ensure compliance at their companies.
