 The stakes have never been higher for global companies active in emerging markets.

To address evolving demands of the FCPA and similar laws, in-house counsel must be prepared to develop strategies and respond to these complex issues. This session will discuss worldwide anti-corruption enforcement, recent policy developments and trends and strategies for implementing robust compliance programs and responding to alleged compliance breaches.
