International Conference on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act
Wednesday, December 4 - Thursday, December 5, 2019 | 8:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. ET | Washington, DC
V&E partners Palmina Fava, Matt Jacobs and Ephraim “Fry” Wernick will speak at the 36th International Conference on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act hosted by the American Conference Institute. This conference is the premier event for the global anti-corruption community with over 700 professionals attending each year. V&E’s Government Investigations and White Collar Criminal Defense group will also host a bourbon and wine tasting reception during the conference.
Palmina will lead an interactive, smaller-group exchange on emerging issues affecting compliance and third-party management in Brazil. Unlike other sessions, this segment will be structured as a discussion among speakers and participants.
Matt will speak in a session that will take participants through the nuances of determining the scope of privilege and accidental waivers through the use of hypothetical scenarios. With varying approaches to privilege across jurisdictions, attendees will learn how to navigate complex decision-making and the potential impact on the course of an investigation.
Fry will speak on a panel titled “How to Defend Your Program to the Agencies: Practitioners Discuss Their Experiences Amid the Latest DoJ Guidance and Increased Global Enforcement.” This discussion will navigate critical aspects of how to prepare for meetings with prosecutors and walk them through your program. This panel of experts will impart their experiences with respect to key program elements and improvements, objective data, and best practices for cultivating a positive working relationship.
