Compliance Due Diligence for Corporate Transactions

Past Event - Video Available | January.24.2017 | 11am - 12pm (Eastern Standard Time)

Webinar

With intensified enforcement of requirements such as anticorruption and economic sanctions rules, investors and financing parties need protection based on effective due diligence regarding investment targets' and borrowers' compliance experience and record.  At the same time, there are practical limits on the amount of time and resources that one can devote to compliance due diligence.  From an investment target's or borrower's perspective, compliance due diligence should not go beyond sensible steps that keep compliance risk in perspective. 

Experienced practitioners provide practical guidance, for both sides of transactions, regarding compliance with:

  • the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and other anticorruption laws
  • embargoes and other economic sanctions
  • export controls
  • industrial security and other government contacting requirements in the context of corporation transactions, such as acquisitions, joint ventures, securities offerings and other forms of financing

Orrick partners Billy Jacobson, former Co-General Counsel/Chief Compliance Officer of Weatherford International and DOJ Assistant Chief for FCPA Enforcement, and Harry Clark, head of Orrick's International Trade & Compliance group, lead the session.
