8.30: Welcome coffee and registration

9.00: Chairs' opening remarks

Maurice Burke, Hogan Lovells
9.30: Session one: Anti-corruption enforcement in South East Asia - quo vadis?
Is enforcement of anti-bribery and other corporate criminal legislation around South East Asia increasing, decreasing… or just evolving slightly? And what does that mean for those who help clients stay on the right side of the line, and who help them to investigate when it appears they may have crossed it?

In this panel, leading names will identify the most important regional developments of the past year and discuss what those mean in the longer term for everyone in the investigations space, all in GIR Live’s highly conversational style.

Specific questions they are expected to discuss include:

  • What are the most important developments from the past 12 months or so?
  • Which are the most active enforcers?
  • How is enforcement in the region different from other parts of the world? For how long will that be the case?
  • What effect will certain highly public investigations now unfolding in the region have?
  • To what extent are enforcers in the region cooperating with near neighbours and more internationally?

11.00: Coffee break
11.30: Session two: Case-study: "Conducting an internal investigation inside Indonesia"

Indonesia has been a big focus for many companies and their external lawyers in recent years. This session will allow attendees to benchmark their own practice against that of others when it comes to conducting an internal investigation on Indonesian soil.

Specific issues the case-study will bring to the fore include:

  • Strategic considerations when investigating within Indonesia: how to scope an investigation
  • Deciding who should investigate
  • Evidence handling and data privacy: special considerations?
  • Effective witness interviews: cultural aspects to factor in
  • Privilege
  • Dealing with the consequences: how to work with local regulators and law-enforcers
  • Tips on remediation
