Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will prepare counsel for the day when law enforcement shows up at company headquarters demanding immediate access. Such events are often a complete surprise to counsel. It is imperative that counsel is prepared for this potentially earth-shattering occurrence.

The panel will review these and other notable issues:

- What must law enforcement show to enter the premises?
- How can the scope of law enforcement's authority be determined?
