Join us for a full day program and multiple networking opportunities, where leading government officials, in-house and external counsel in multiple fields discuss the latest trends in regulatory enforcement and cutting edge strategies for addressing the threat of cross-border investigations
Regulators across the globe are increasingly targeting conduct that occurred outside of their home jurisdiction, but which affect their domestic economies. Companies must therefore protect themselves against violations of a wide range of laws and regulations across multiple jurisdictions.
Once an investigation is launched, corporate counsel will need to effectively coordinate the company's response to multiple regulators across the globe, who are often sharing the fruits of their investigation with each other. If a violation is uncovered, counsel must quickly adopt strategies for minimizing the impact on the company's business, while at the same time coordinate responses to often conflicting sets of requests from multiple regulators.
Cross-border investigations are moving at an increasingly frenetic pace and the challenge of assessing, preempting and addressing compliance issues is becoming increasingly more difficult.
This conference provides a unique opportunity to hear how leading practitioners in multiple fields counsel their clients on how to respond most effectively and efficiently to cross-border investigations, including:
- An overview of recent enforcement trends and priorities from leading regulatory officials;
- A practical guide to assessing risks and designing compliance programs to effectively manage those risk;
- Best practices for managing internal investigations;
- Recommendations for dealing with ethical issues that arise during internal investigations, including the protection of the legal privilege, conflicts of interest, and spoiliation
- How to develop a critical action plan and respond to a dawn raid.
