NYC Breakfast Panel Tomorrow: Managing International Fraud Investigations

The Japan Society and Catalyst are presenting a free breakfast panel tomorrow, Oct. 23, Global Fraud — Managing International Investigations. The panel features two Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher partners, Joel M. Cohen and Lee G. Dunst, together with John Tredennick, Catalyst’s CEO, discussing the heightened global enforcement enforcement of anti-corruption laws, including the FCPA and the U.K. Bribery Act.

Here is the program description:

Government regulators around the world are instituting new anti-corruption laws and enforcing them with greater vigor. U.S. criminal and civil regulators have broadened their focus recently to investigate alleged improper conduct outside the U.S. Penalties can include heavy fines and lengthy prison sentences—not the only costs and, frequently, not the most significant consequences. This program addresses the evolution of FCPA, UK Bribery Act and other anti-corruption enforcement efforts; strategic issues to consider when responding to government requests for evidence located outside the U.S., including data privacy, eDiscovery and general cooperation principles; and balancing the company’s response with the demands of the local government and laws.

The free program begins at 8 a.m. with registration and a buffet breakfast. The panel discussion is 8:30 to 10 a.m. The program is free, but preregistration is required. Registration information is available from the Japan Society.
