Merchant Acquirers' Committee Annual Conference

Jason Burt, counsel in Latham’s Washington, D.C. office, will moderate a panel discussing lessons learned from recent civil and criminal actions in the payments industry and how this affects the acquiring industry.

In 2016, both the Federal Trade Commission and the Department of Justice concluded their respective civil and criminal actions against Jeremy Johnson and his company iWorks. The panel will offer a unique insight into these actions and lessons the government learned about the acquiring industry from both a civil regulatory and criminal law perspective. The panel will discuss the legal tools available to the FTC and in the criminal code that can affect how the payments industry functions.

The panel will be moderated by Jason Burt, the lead prosecutor on the Johnson criminal matter, who is now counsel with Latham & Watkins in Washington D.C., and will include panelists Robert Anguizola from the FTC and Karin Fojtik from the Department of Justice.
