As a registered member of GICLI, you will be the first to hear when publications and Annual Meeting proceedings & materials are available to download. In addition, you will receive news & updates about the legal industry as well as advance notice regarding gatherings of the GICLI community.



The Government Investigations & Civil Litigation Institute (GICLI) was founded in response to the need for in-depth education regarding the dramatic surge in regulatory enforcement activities and related civil litigations that burden the corporate legal department. Recent laws and regulations impose greater complexity and increased risk for practitioners handling investigatory and litigation matters. 



The 3rd Annual Meeting is championed, in part, by our two co-chairs: Rishi Chhatwal and David Orensten.

A very special thank you for their leadership and continued support of our organization.

The Venue

GICLI's third annual meeting will be held October 10th-11th at the Ritz-Carlton in Dove Mountain, AZ.

The program of this landmark meeting was designed to coincide with both the annual Electronic Discovery Institute (EDI) Leadership Summit and the Judicial Training Symposium, a joint educational initiative of EDI and the Federal Judicial Center.

The Experience

Participants of the GICLI Annual Meeting will share valuable experiences and practical strategies for handling government investigations and related civil litigation at collegial roundtable and panel discussions.

An open, knowledge-sharing forum is encouraged through two days of breakout sessions, workshops and casual, relationship-building events.
