September 4, 2019
Lightfoot, Franklin & White LLC partner Jack Sharman will serve as a panelist during the ABA Southeastern White Collar Crime Institute in Braselton, Georgia. The conference, put on by the ABA’s Criminal Justice Section from September 4-6, brings together defense lawyers, corporate counsel, prosecutors and judges to discuss current issues in white-collar law.
Sharman’s panel was titled “Big Data: The Evolution of Health Care, RICO and Money Laundering.” He and fellow panelists discussed the impact of data on federal and state investigations, particularly those involving the health care sector as well as money laundering and RICO. The developing criminal and civil litigation surrounding prescription opioids served as a case study, and the session also addressed data’s impact on corporate compliance.
Sharman has practiced law for nearly 30 years and leads the firm’s White-Collar Criminal Defense and Corporate Investigations practice. He defends businesses and individuals in civil and criminal white-collar cases, provides guidance during corporate internal investigations and advises clients on how to stay in compliance with the law.
