About the Event:
On the first anniversary of the infamous Yates Memorandum where Deputy Attorney General Sally Quillian Yates set out the United States Department of Justice’s guidelines for criminal and civil corporate investigations with an enforcement focus on individual accountability for corporate wrongdoings, this seminar will review the most pertinent enforcement trends and how they apply to companies operating in Asia.

Topics will include:
  • Regulatory enforcement in Asia and the United States– overview over recent enforcement trends;
  • Focus on individual responsibility – how regulators worldwide focus increasingly on directors and decision-makers when prosecuting companies;
  • Local enforcement – how local compliance risks can lead to global enforcement; and
  • Best practices to minimise compliance risks and optimise company policies and procedures
