Cooperation between regulators and law enforcement authorities across borders has become increasingly common in recent years. This trend has resulted in more complex and large-scale cross-border investigations with significant financial and collateral consequences for companies across many jurisdictions. Companies caught in the cross-hairs of such investigations must navigate foreign data protection and data privacy laws, language and cultural barriers in conducting interviews, and potentially conflicting cooperation obligations with regulators. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has shaken up how cross-border internal and government investigations are conducted, from how evidence is collected, to how interviews are taken, to how regulators cooperate.

Listen as a panel of distinguished practitioners with diverse backgrounds as in house counsel, outside defense counsel, and forensic accounting organized by The Knowledge Group provide a comprehensive discussion of the recent developments and critical issues surrounding cross-border investigations, including predictions for 2022. Speakers will also offer practical tips and strategies to respond to this ever-changing multi-jurisdictional regulatory landscape.

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

  • Cross-Border Investigations: Recent Developments in the U.S., Latin America, and the Middle East
  • Challenges of Conducting Investigations During the Global Pandemic
  • Tips for Navigating Cross-Border Investigations in Today’s World
  • Key Takeaways for Cross-Border Investigations in 2022
