Anti-Corruption, Anti-Bribery and Anti-Government Enforcement: How to Avoid Becoming a Target of Government Regulators

If your business buys or sells product overseas; is regulated by the government; or has potential whistleblowers, you should be prepared to be the target of a government investigation. Join us to learn practical steps that help businesses minimize risk associated with government enforcement actions. We will review areas of law that often expose companies to enforcement risk, including:

• The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act

• The False Claims Act

• Anti-Money Laundering regimes

• U.S. Sentencing Guidelines governing corporate compliance programs

Attendees will also receive advice on managing government investigations, including:

• Preparing employees for government scrutiny

• Best practices for managing internal investigations

• Preserving protections provided by attorney-client privilege

Presenter:

Jeffrey C. Corey, Shareholder, Parson Behle & Latimer

Purchase Agreements – A Primer: In this inter-active session, we will analyze a case study for a stock acquisition and key provisions of a Purchase Agreement. Among other sections, we will discuss heavily negotiated provisions such as representations and warranties, limitations of liability, and clauses regarding employees (pre-signing and pre-closing offers, non-competition covenants, etc.), as well as the impact of knowledge and materiality qualifiers. We will also address timely topics such as representations and warranties insurance and anti-trust considerations.

Presenters:

Barbara Bagnasacco, Shareholder, Parsons Behle & Latimer

Allison Blais, Director & Associate General Counsel, Adobe
