French-American Chamber of Commerce Webinar: "Navigating Internal Investigations in France"

09.09.2020

The French-American Chamber of Commerce and Miller & Chevalier will present the webinar, "Navigating Internal Investigations in France," on September 9, 10:00 a.m. EDT/4:00 p.m. CEST. The passage of Sapin II and the French Bar Council's recent publication of guidelines for attorneys conducting internal investigations signal a new era of anti-corruption enforcement and increased numbers of internal investigations in France. At the same time, the United States continues to aggressively enforce the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), including in coordinated resolutions with French authorities. This webinar will discuss:

  • Recent developments in France's anti-corruption framework, including the French Bar Council guidelines
  • Recent updates to the FCPA Resource Guide published by U.S. regulators
  • Key practice tips for counsel representing companies operating in France, including privilege, data privacy, and jurisdictional considerations
