U.S. Attorney Alicia Limtiaco Attends 2015 NAPABA Convention
ALICIA A.G. LIMTIACO, U.S. Attorney for the Districts of Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands (NMI), was invited to participate as a panel member at the 2015 National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA) Convention which was held on November 3-6, 2015 in New Orleans. U.S. Attorney Florence Nakakuni for the District of Hawaii and U.S. Attorney Carter Stewart for the Southern District of Ohio were also invited as panel members. The panel was entitled, “U.S. Attorney Roundtable: Understanding The Federal Prosecutor,” and described as follows: Post-financial crisis, government regulators have placed renewed focus on criminal and civil enforcement. Federal prosecutions and regulatory actions are among the most challenging matters affecting your company or law firm. Successful resolution of these cases requires an understanding of the thinking and motivation of the federal regulator prosecuting your case. In an inaugural panel for NAPABA, U.S. Attorneys Carter Stewart (S.D. Ohio), Florence Nakakuni (D. Hawaii) and Alicia Limtiaco (D. Guam, D. NMI) will discuss the process, and the factors they consider, in initiating and resolving cases handled in their district. The panelists will also discuss their backgrounds, management policies, and developments at the Department of Justice.
