Join Mayer Brown partners Rich Rosenfeld, Ori Lev, and Chris Leach—veterans of the SEC, CFPB, and FTC, respectively—as they discuss the process and key things to keep in mind, including how to tell if you are the target, best practices for your internal team, and what your Board and employees need to know.
