Jeannie Rhee

Aaron Zebley

Jeannie Rhee and Aaron Zebley of Wilmer Hale will talk about lessons learned in the course of high profile investigations and their aftermath. They will draw on investigations from their time in government service and private practice, including last fall’s Ray Rice investigation under former FBI Director and Wilmer Hale partner Robert Mueller. Lessons learned will cover the importance of understanding an investigation’s various constituencies, report writing, managing the release of a report in an age of social media, and other issues.
