Allen & Overy partners and associates set to discuss compliance during webcast
An experienced panel of government enforcement experts — including Jeffrey Lehtman, Kurt Wolfe and Sarah Cox from Allen & Overy — will discuss how multinational organisations in all industries can ensure they have developed and implemented robust compliance programmes during a live webcast set to be held on 18 June 2013 at 13:00 (Eastern).
In a recent case the Department of Justice (DoJ) dubbed a ‘wake-up call’, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and DoJ charged four individuals for their roles in a massive international bribery scheme, which the SEC discovered during a periodic examination of a broker-dealer.
US regulators alleged that employees of the broker-dealer paid illicit bribes to high-ranking officials of the state-owned economic development bank of Venezuela. The action illustrates how conduct that has traditionally formed the basis of a Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) case might also subject individuals and entities to a much broader array of charges under US law, including charges under anti-money-laundering laws and the Travel Act.
The webcast panel, which also includes Ellen Zimiles, managing director and head of global investigations and compliance at Navigant; Alma Angotti, director — global investigations and compliance at Navigant; and Jay Perlman, director — global investigations and compliance at Navigant, will focus on how multinational organisations can ensure their compliance programmes address these overlapping regulatory schemes.
