Philadelphia partner Ronald Sarachan spoke at the ABA’s 27th Annual National Institute on White Collar Crime on Friday, March 8, in Las Vegas, Nev.

Ron, a partner in the firm's Commercial Litigation Practice Group and co-chair of the White Collar/Internal Investigations Team, moderated a panel titled, “Environmental Enforcement.”

The panel used the Deepwater Horizon case and the Justice Department’s recent indictments of three individuals at BP as a jumping-off point to discuss the prosecution and defense of environmental crimes cases involving major industrial accidents.
