Webinar Now Available: Tips for Responding to FTC Civil Investigative Demands (CIDs)

Resources & Self-Education   |   Thursday, December 15, 2016

If your company is served with a civil investigative demand (CID) by the FTC for alleged internet-related wrongdoing, how do you respond? You likely don’t know whether you are the target of the investigation, or whether the FTC merely believes that you have information relevant for an investigation of another party.

The stakes are often high, as FTC enforcement actions can result in asset freezes, the appointment of a receiver, and even court-ordered restitution to consumers. How do you respond to the CID in a way that placates the FTC but also protects your company as much as possible?

In their complimentary webinar, Karl Kronenberger and Liana Chen covered what a CID is and how to respond to it, the FTC’s investigative processes and powers, and the limitations on CIDs.

Kronenberger and Chen also discussed:

  • Actions CID recipients can take to push back against the FTC and the potential remedies available.
  • Compliance advice for companies to avoid appearing on FTC’s radar, and thus receiving a CID.
  • Pre-litigation and litigation tactics, such as obtaining extensions and Motions to Quash CIDs.
