Anatomy of a Financial Fraud: Origin, Investigation, Prosecution – and Prevention

BABC Lunch and Learn Seminar



Wednesday, September 18-Thursday, September 19, 2013
5:00 AM-5:00 AM

Join the litigation team of Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP for a one-hour lunch presentation. Financial fraud takes many forms, but the effect is the same: a negative impact on victims, whether corporate or individual. Attendees at this seminar will learn about the financial fraud – from its origin, to its detection, through investigation and prosecution – and take away practical tips for compliance and fraud prevention. This course is pending approval by the Tennessee Commission for Continuing Education for one hour of CLE credits.
