Global Investigations Review is pleased to announce a major one day international conference to be held in New York.

WilmerHale Partner Erin Sloane will participate in a panel entitled "Location, location, location," which will discuss how more clients are confronting regulatory challenges in the US and abroad at the same time Now that enforcement is worldwide. How should those clients respond to such circumstances?

In this session, a panel of leading names, led by Bruce E. Yannett of Debevoise & Plimpton, will examine different ways of balancing competing and often conflicting regulator demands. Drawing on decades of experience, and fueled (GIR will make sure) by plenty of audience participation, they will give their tips on navigating an increasingly hectic international space, and dealing with situations for which no precedent quite seems to serve.

Questions the panel are expected to discuss include:

  • How do you conduct an internal investigation when it is expected in the US but opposed by non US authorities?
  • Can you “cooperate” in the US but adopt a different strategy elsewhere?
  • Are coordinated multi-jurisdictional settlements possible? Are they wise?
