9.00: Brazil’s Enforcement Tsunami

As the Car Wash operation proceeds, government investigations in Brazil continue to multiply, with the use of new investigative techniques. More companies from a wider range of sectors are implicated in the various scandals and ensuing cases. Meanwhile, many questions and concerns remain regarding Brazil’s enforcement efforts, particularly authorities' overlapping demands and what some fear may be the “new normal.” How much longer will the storm last, and what lies ahead? Lawyers from Brazil and abroad will debate the unfolding situation and address both the legal and commercial realities.

Fábio Medina Osório, Partner, Medina Osório, Rio de Janeiro

10.30: Coffee break

11.00: Compliance 2.0

With increased global scrutiny and an undeniably challenging enforcement environment, the work of compliance professionals in Latin America has become increasingly complex. In short, the risks of non-compliance have expanded dramatically, while resources to ensure compliance may have not. Regulators around Latin America and beyond have growing expectations about what constitutes an effective anti-corruption compliance program. In-house counsel from both regulated and non-regulated companies will compare notes, providing insights and advice on best practices, current worries, and maintaining the correct risk balance in this brave new world of Compliance 2.0.

Luís Fernando Radulov Queiroz, Vice President, General Counsel & Integrity Officer - South America, ABB, São Paulo

12.00: Coffee break 

12.25: Regional Regulators’ Fireside Chat: Argentina, Brazil and Mexico

While not yet qualifying as an Olympic sport, anti-corruption enforcement continues to expand and deepen within and beyond Latin America. New laws and related enforcement initiatives have yielded an increasingly fertile anti-corruption landscape across the region, and one that continues to evolve and mature. Within this ever-challenging enforcement environment, we will hear directly from regulators leading the way in their respective countries. This unique forum will include officials from Brazil, Mexico and Argentina discussing their country’s anti-corruption enforcement journeys, including challenges encountered along the way, and near-term priorities. Considerations include the ramifications for companies operating in the region and how best to meet the increasingly high expectations of regulators.

13.25: Networking lunch

14.40: Countering M&A Risk in the Age of Lava Jato

If practitioners thought that anti-corruption due diligence had become complicated before Lava Jato, then the current environment poses challenges – both to companies and their lawyers – which were previously unimaginable. And yet in the current economic situation, restructuring and consolidation are matters of survival to many companies. This panel of experts will discuss how to lead clients through the transactional maze, including best practices for conducting anti-corruption due diligence, factors to consider in voluntarily disclosing to regulators, and the possible risks of successor liability. At a time where hardly anyone one wants to buy an anti-corruption problem with enforcement authorities, how can prudent companies proceed, and what is expected in terms of post-closing integration?

Victor Ramacciotti, Senior Manager, BDO Brazil, São Paulo

15.40: Coffee break

16.00: Afternoon Q&A - USA

Leo Tsao, Assistant Chief, Fraud Section, Department of Justice, Criminal Division, Washington DC with Andrew Levine, Debevoise & Plimpton, New York

16.40: Investigations and Crisis Management

Cross-border, cross-disciplinary, complex and expensive – many companies in Latin America have had a short, sharp lesson in how difficult large-scale investigations can be. In-house and private practice lawyers will discuss how best to prepare for and manage the investigative process, including complexities such as crisis management and data privacy protections. How much investigating is enough, and what may different regulators require? In addition, from these larger-scale investigations, what lessons can be extracted for in-house counsel and compliance professionals looking to right-size smaller internal investigations?
