Major sanctions enforcement actions like those collectively taken against ZTE Corporation by the DOJ, DOC and DOT illustrate these agencies’ commitment to jointly pursue violations within their respective areas of jurisdiction, while presenting companies subject to such multiple investigations with unique challenges. This session addresses:
  • How the Justice Department, BIS, and OFAC operate to pursue their respective enforcement priorities in matters that straddle their areas of jurisdiction and require interagency coordination
  • The issues that such multi-agency enforcement actions present for companies under investigation, and best practices for dealing with them
  • The issues presented for both the enforcement agencies and target companies in seeking to achieve a global resolution
