"At What Cost?" is a 45-minute fictional corporate drama created by DLA Piper. Featuring a fictitious company called EPTICOM, "At What Cost?" addresses the importance of directors and management reacting to indications of questionable or fraudulent conduct within the company.
The film is a corporate governance education and training tool for directors, legal departments and management at companies around the world. It is also eligible for 1.5 hours of ethics CLE credit in most states.
"This film gives our lawyers a tool to reach our clients about these issues in a way that no other law firm is doing," said Stasia Kelly, DLA Piper’s co-managing partner (Americas). "A film like this would have been valuable to me as a general counsel because it depicts realistic situations where executives need to make difficult decisions."
In 2014, “At What Cost?” received a Communicator Award of Distinction, a leading international awards program recognizing big ideas in marketing and communications. In 2013, the film was named a bronze winner of the 34th Annual Telly Awards, which recognize excellence in film and video production, online video content, and television commercials and programming.
