IBA Annual Conference Miami 2022
30 Oct - 4 Nov 2022
Room 209, Level 2
The development of international cooperation in corruption investigations
Tuesday 1 November (0930 - 1045)
Cross-border investigations are clearly on the rise. How do companies cope with the increased demand to investigate bribery allegations and what are the main hurdles they are confronted with? Are the companies incentivised by local legislation to self-report identified misbehaviour to the prosecuting authorities? In which instances should an investigation be conducted internally by the company and what are the reasons to involve an external counsel? What kind of new obligations will be put on companies in the light of the new whistleblowing legislation? What should be taken into consideration to protect the internal investigations results before a decision has been taken on what to do with the results of the investigation? Are there any "golden rules" on how to conduct corporate investigations? Many questions to be discussed by investigation lawyers and companies.
