Anti-corruption investigations have become a significant risk to every company as regulators from around the world increase their jurisdictional reach. The ability to handle such matters requires more than knowing the law; it requires practical knowledge of how matters are handled and how to best protect the company.

We cordially invite you to join us at this exclusive seminar during which Mayer Brown Partner and Co-Chair of the Global Anti-corruption Practice Bill Michael, a former DOJ prosecutor, and Hong Kong Partner Richard Tollan, a former detective inspector in the Hong Kong Commercial Crime Bureau, provide practical, hands-on advice on how to minimise the risks companies face and how best to address investigations when they occur in order to protect the company and its employees in a cost-effective manner.

Key topics to be addressed include:

  • Recent court affirmation on the jurisdictional reach of US regulators
  • New efforts by the UK Serious Fraud Office that impact how companies can conduct investigations
  • How to prepare for meetings with the SFO and DOJ during an investigation: what is needed from subsidiaries in China
  • China-specific issues relating to investigations such as state secrets, Chinese joint venture partners and use of investigators
  • Creating credible parameters around investigations to limit investigative costs and potential exposure
