At this highly anticipated session, expert practitioners will discuss what multi-jurisdictional enforcement truly looks like on the ground-and how best to manage increasing, overlapping and uncertain risk factors:

  • The risk of “follow-on” cases: When a resolved or settled case in one jurisdiction could trigger new bribery investigations in other countries
  • The challenges of coordinating with multiple agencies: Best practices for communicating with foreign authorities
  • Managing the uncertain risks posed by the enforcement of a new or amended anti-bribery law
  • How a settlement in one jurisdiction could affect a company’s business operations in other key markets
  • Local laws affecting your internal investigation and ability to cooperate with authorities: Data privacy, State Secret Law, privilege, evidencegathering procedures and more
  • When a DPA with the DOJ and/or a press release could “tip off” foreign authorities of bribery in their respective jurisdictions
  • When multi-jurisdictional bribery enforcement could spark investigations of other potential crimes, including fraud, money laundering and privacy violations-and vice versa
  • Impact of multi-jurisdictional enforcement risks on your decision to disclose or cooperate
