1.50: Chair’s welcome and introduction

Recent years have witnessed a dramatic wave of cross-border anti-corruption enforcement, provoking an exponential increase in the number of coordinated settlements across multiple jurisdictions. In just the last five years, Brazilian, U.S. and other countries together have settled more than ten FCPA-related matters featuring conduct in Brazil. This cooperation and coordination among authorities has raised numerous challenges and opportunities, which we will focus on throughout the first day’s programme.

2.00: Cross-border enforcement: Roundtable discussion with Brazilian and U.S. authorities

To begin, leading Brazilian and U.S. authorities will discuss expectations around self-reporting, cooperation with government investigations, remediation, and penalties, including the dreaded risk of piling on. Other topics will include evidence gathering, information sharing, and the impact of legal differences within and across jurisdictions.

3.00: Challenges and opportunities: views from the defence perspective

Next, highly experienced practitioners will share their response to the issues raised earlier by the authorities. Topics for discussion will include difficulties faced when reporting to and negotiating with multiple authorities, both within Brazil and with U.S. and other authorities. Counsel also will discuss challenges in managing the expectations of regulators (and corporate clients) across jurisdictions, as well as difficulties in obtaining legal certainty for their clients.

2.25: Compliance best practices in the age of COVID-19

The global pandemic has impacted all aspects of business, not least of which compliance. This panel of in-house and external experts will discuss real-life challenges of companies grappling with evolving compliance risks and often trying to do more with less. Even when working remotely, some compliance tasks remain absolutely vital, such as effectively handling whistleblower complaints, while others more reasonably may await a return to relative normality. Companies must consider how to set clear and realistic priorities and how to maintain a strong tone at the top, notwithstanding significant commercial pressures. The panelists will reflect on compliance lessons learned during recent months, as well as strategies and technologies that may positively influence the future of compliance.

3.25: Regional anti-corruption enforcement colloquium

Leading anti-corruption lawyers from countries in Latin America will share their perspectives on the most significant regulatory and enforcement developments across the region.

For example, in Mexico there have been new AML investigations as part of the anti-corruption enforcement strategy. Mexico also enacted the Republican Austerity Law which, among other things, imposes severe restrictions on government officials moving to the private sector. In Argentina, the segregation of the Oficina Anticorrupción (OA) from the country’s Presidency gave the agency more autonomy. Colombian authorities are still striving for prosecutions related to the Odebrecht case. Meanwhile, agents from the FBI’s dedicated anti-corruption squad in Miami recently cited Brazil, Mexico and Colombia as three priority countries for the FBI’s investigative efforts in Latin America. This panel also will address how the increased cross-border collaboration on bribery cases – both among regional prosecutors and with U.S. authorities – has altered companies’ risk exposures.
