Join NYCLA for an all-day program, where leading government officials and in-house and external counsel in many 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 jurisdictions that affect their domestic economies. Companies must now protect themselves against violations of a wide range of law and regulations across multiple jurisdictions.
The program will explore complex investigations and how corporate counsel will need to effectively coordinate the company’s response to multiple regulators across the globe, who share the results of their investigations 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 sets of requests from multiple regulators.
The conference provides an opportunity to hear how leading practitioners in multiple fields counsel their clients on how to respond effectively and efficiently to cross-border investigations.
