WilmerHale Seminar: Government Scrutiny of Global Business: What Every Company Needs to Know

October 7, 2008 | Menlo Park, California

As the U.S. Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission and other government agencies increasingly focus their enforcement efforts on business operations and practices outside the United States, every company doing business in the global marketplace is potentially subject to an inquiry or investigation regarding compliance with U.S. laws. Substantial civil and criminal penalties relating to bribery, money laundering, technology transfer, and trade secrets are driving companies to educate themselves and their business partners about potential pitfalls and best practices in compliance.

This seminar, co-hosted by Orrick and WilmerHale, will present a joint seminar which will address the latest developments in enforcement and compliance relating to global business. The half-day program will draw upon the combined experience of both firms' practices in internal investigations, intellectual property and white collar criminal defense. The seminar,which will also be held in New York City on November 5, willhighlight the key issues and presents practice advice on compliance.
