The panel will discuss ethical considerations involved in investigating whistleblower claims, including how to determine when and what to report to regulators, and in crafting compliance programs. The CFTC’s recently updated Whistleblower Program Rules and advances technology and data analytics will help frame the discussion. The panelists plan to use hypothetical fact patterns to make the discussion interactive, exploring with audience members how counsel advising energy companies should ethically handle these internal whistleblower issues.
