14.00: Session one: Navigating privilege and privacy in international investigations

Managing global corporate investigations today requires running a maze of legal privilege and privacy laws. From China to Brazil and throughout the globe, the ability to satisfy local authorities and protect the integrity of your investigation requires a keen focus on changing laws and judgment calls informed by experience.

Our expert panel is expected to discuss the following questions: 

  • How do you protect the integrity of a company’s privileged internal investigation if the local jurisdiction does not recognize privilege over investigations conducted by internal or even external counsel?
  • Do you really need to waive privilege in the UK to be offered a DPA?
  • What does the recent English High Court ruling in the Royal Bank of Scotland matter mean regarding privilege for witness interviews and other internal investigation work product?
  • What are the best strategies for gathering information and data in China?
  • In Brazil, how do you conduct witness interviews and written depositions in a way that enables later disclosures to US authorities as well as protects privilege and privacy?
  • What are the practical challenges for gathering data and conducting interviews in Europe and in Russia, with strong protections over data privacy?
  • The US Department of Justice has warned that companies cannot hide behind data privacy laws of other jurisdictions to avoid US disclosures. How to balance the two?

Moderator:
Dave Callaway, Baker McKenzie

Panel:
Steve Adams, Vice President of Litigation, Applied Materials
Paulo Galvão, Brazilian Federal Prosecution Office

15.30: Coffee break

16.00: Session two: Where are we headed? Predictions for anti-trust, FCPA and white-collar enforcement in the next four years.

Dodd-Frank rollback is on the agenda, but what about corporate enforcement policy more broadly? Amid unusual uncertainty in Washington, a panel of attorneys with diverse expertise will offer their perspectives on developments and questions including: 

  • How will Trump administration trade concerns affect enforcement against international cartels? 
  • Will the FCPA pilot program and its self-reporting incentives survive? 
  • What practical effects will budget cuts have on enforcement at the SEC?
  • With conflict minerals, extractive industry payment transparency and other Dodd-Frank rules in the crosshairs, how should compliance officers respond to uncertainty over the regulatory direction? 
  • Are companies making adjustments to their anti-corruption compliance programs or their anti-fraud controls given the trends in the administration? 
  • Will the political controversies surrounding the Trump administration and its slow pace of nominating and confirming key officials hamper efforts to roll out new policies?
