Programme details

Among the conditions imposed in the settlement with anticorruption authorities, the role of the monitor intrigues. Is it similar to the compliance officer? Are there limits to the role? This panel will discuss what the monitors are in the context of growing enforcement in Latin America.

Programme details

Many multinationals tend to see their compliance programmes from their headquarters and do not sufficiently consider that corruption risks vary enormously from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Public procurement may be a problem in one country, but not in another. The panel discusses how the risk-based approach helps to design an effective anti-corruption compliance programme. Moderator Raphael Sore, Machado Meyer Advogados, São Paulo Speakers Isabel Carvalho, HL Consultores, São Paulo Hui Chen, Former Compliance Counsel Expert, Criminal Division, US Department of Justice, Washington DC Stefan Hoffman-Kuhnt, Pohlmann & Company, Montreal Karyn Koiffman, Baker & McKenzie, New York Joan Meyer, Baker & Mckenzie, Washington DC Volker D Popp, Daimler Mexico, Mexico City Luiz Fernando Ract Camps, International Compliance Officer, United Health Group, Miami

There is an avalanche of anti-corruption enforcement and, sometimes, the role of lawyers is misinterpreted. Legal privilege is viewed in a bad light by some anti-corruption authorities, but is one of the basic guarantees of democratic nations. This panel will discuss the potential impact of anti-corruption investigations on the relationship between attorneys – both outside and in-house – and clients in view of recent legal developments. Moderator Carla Arellano, Ferrere, Montevideo Speakers Kevin Altit, Mattos Filho Veiga Filho Marrey Jr e Quiroga, Rio de Janeiro Mark Beardsworth, Brown Rudnick, London John Buretta, Cravath Swaine & Moore, New York Adriana Dantas, Barbosa Müssnich & Aragão Advogados, São Paulo; Regional Representative Latin America, Structured Criminal Settlements Subcommittee, IBA Anti-Corruption Committee Sophie Scemla, Eversheds Sutherland, Paris; Senior Vice-Chair, Double Jeopardy Subcommittee, IBA Anti-Corruption Committee

Programme details

There is more to international asset recovery than recovering stolen assets through criminal and mutual assistance proceedings. In most cases, such recoveries only represent a fraction of the diverted public funds, and even a smaller fraction of the damage incurred, after years of proceedings, unless the assets are voluntarily repatriated in the context of a structured criminal settlement. This session will present the civil remedies available to states and stateowned enterprises for obtaining compensation from corruption, in coordination with criminal proceedings, and will focus on the use of cross-border insolvency proceedings (a joint World Bank/IBA publication on the topic will be launched at the conference). Co-Moderators Stephen Baker, Baker & Partners, Jersey; Senior Vice-Chair, Asset Recovery Subcommittee, IBA Anti-Corruption Committee Yves Klein, Monfrini Bitton Klein, Geneva; Chair, Asset Recovery Subcommittee, IBA Anti-Corruption Committee Speakers Angela Barkhouse, Kalo Advisors, British Virgin Islands Jean-Pierre Brun, Finance & Markets Global Practice, World Bank Group, Washington, DC Edward H Davis Jr, Sequor Law, Miami; North America Regional Officer, IBA Anti-Corruption Committee Martin S Kenney, Martin Kenney & Co Solicitors, British Virgin Islands Eronides Aparecido Rodrigues dos Santos, Prosecutor, Public Prosecutor’s Office, São Paulo
