Doing Business in India: Avoiding Corruption Risks and Monitoring Compliance Programs

India presents companies not only with tremendous business opportunities but also an entrenched culture of corruption at virtually every government “touchpoint.”  Strafford Publications recently hosted a panel discussion highlighting some of the unique challenges facing companies trying to navigate India’s notorious bureaucracy.  The discussion examined FCPA cases with Indian connections as well as the anti-corruption enforcement climate in India and offered guidance on third-party due diligence and on monitoring the effectiveness of an anti-corruption compliance program.  The panel featured Jay Holtmeier, a partner at Wilmer Hale; Elizabeth D.
