Taken from the Web Program Recorded June, 2018 in New York FCPA: Cross-Jurisdictional M&A Due Diligence Case Study [01:06:06]

In the age of the Car Wash prosecutions in Brazil, the Panama Papers, and myriad other high-profile anti-corruption and related global compliance risk cases, regulatory due diligence is no longer a lesser consideration in cross-border M&A transactions.  In many cases, diligence teams include legal compliance advisors and white collar attorneys from multiple jurisdictions.  In the current environment, assessing deal value in the face of significant regulatory risks, in a compressed M&A timeframe, requires exceptional coordination and business acumen. Examination of a recent case study provides valuable insights on these and related challenges.

In this presentation, Joanna M. Ritcey-Donohue of Kirkland & Ellis LLP (Washington, DC), José Alexandre Buaiz Neto of Pinheiro Neto Advogados (Brazil) and Knut Hoivik of Advokatfirmaet Schjødt AS (Norway) will discuss:

  • Early identification of anti-corruption and related global compliance risk issues for diligence
  • Forest from the trees: Right-sizing regulatory diligence strategies and execution
  • Common interest privilege, communicating diligence findings to the Board and other important considerations

Program Level:  Intermediate/Advanced 

Intended Audience:  In-house counsel, outside attorneys, board members, corporate officers, and other allied professionals responsible for anti-corruption related activities 

Prerequisites:  Working knowledge of anti-corruption legal compliance and disclosure issues 

Advanced Preparation:  None
