Cooperation between global regulators and law enforcement authorities across borders has become more common today – a trend which resulted in a more complex and large-scale cross-border investigations. This joined-up approach, along with other challenges brought by the current remote work environment setup and the new administration’s enforcement priorities, has posed several challenges to investigators. Additionally, conflicts on the management of raw data gathered from investigations, the conduct of investigative interviews, and the implications of foreign data protection and privacy laws must also be specifically considered.

Although there are lots of technological and legal solutions that could help address most of the issues, it is still critical to examine each tool’s efficiency and reliability. Companies and all related individuals must not only become cognizant of the developments but also of all legal implications to avoid risks of non-compliance.

Listen as a panel of distinguished practitioners organized by The Knowledge Group provide a comprehensive discussion of the recent developments and critical issues surrounding cross-border investigations. Speakers will also offer practical tips and strategies to comply with this ever-changing international regulation landscape.

Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:

  • Cross-Border Investigations: Recent Developments
  • Joined-Up Approach in Cross-Border Investigations: Challenges & Pitfalls
  • Biden’s Enforcement Priorities
  • Structuring Cross-border Compliance Program: What Businesses Should Know
