Global Trends in Anti-Corruption Enforcement
Wednesday, September 30, 2-3 p.m. ET
We invite you to join your fellow trade and compliance professionals for a virtual panel discussion on recent global trends in anti-corruption enforcement and their impact on U.S. and non-U.S. companies and individuals operating both in the United States and abroad.
Increased international coordination between U.S. and non-U.S. government entities has led to noteworthy prosecutions of non-U.S. actors. This program will focus on these recent prosecutions, emerging market issues in Asia and South America, red flag issues in distribution and supply chains, and the intersection between government enforcement and politics.
Panelists will include:
- Rebecca Rohr, Vice President, Anti-Corruption and Global Trade, Ethics & Compliance Office, Hewlett Packard Enterprise
- Mara Senn, Director & Senior Counsel, Global Compliance Investigations, Zimmer Biomet
- Joan Meyer, Partner, White-Collar Criminal Practice, Internal Investigations & Government Enforcement, Thompson Hine LLP
- Samir D. Varma, Partner, International Trade, Thompson Hine LLP
