K&L Gates Panel Reviews Anti-Corruption Enforcement in the U.S., the U.K., China, Australia, Latin America, Africa, Southeast Asia and Russia
With the spate of new anti-corruption laws around the globe, and the evolution of laws already on the books, “it is critical for a company to have on-the-ground information and local support” in structuring an effective anti-bribery and anti-corruption (ABAC) program and responding to regulatory action in all of the regions in which it operates. So said Dick Thornburgh, former Attorney General of the United States and former Governor of Pennsylvania, introducing a recent webinar presented by K&L Gates LLP, where Thornburgh is now of counsel. The K&L Gates speakers who followed Thornburgh shared their direct local experiences and examined the state of the ABAC laws in their regions of speciality.
