Best Practices for Corporate Compliance Programs
What is the state of your company’s corporate compliance program? Is your company well-equipped to manage an investigation by the authorities or even an internal investigation? Please join us for a breakfast panel discussion and Q&A on best practices for corporate compliance programs, with reference to the United States Department of Justice’s guidance on the key elements of an effective program. The discussion will also include a broad overview of the US government enforcement landscape as it relates to entities operating in African jurisdictions, including key trends in investigations and cross-border collaboration among enforcement authorities.
This timely discussion will feature members of our global team of Investigations and Compliance partners, who have extensive experience advising clients on compliance and investigations matters across Africa and other jurisdictions worldwide, and have served in government enforcement roles with the Department of Justice and the New York Attorney General’s office.
