On September 15, 2021, several Gunster attorneys will particpate in the “Don’t lose your way! Navigating the cross-border corporate compliance maze” Globalaw-hosted webinar. Shareholder Jonathan Osborne will moderate the discussion, and shareholders Milton Vescovacci and Nathan Hill will serve as panelists.
The second half of 2020 saw the biggest half-year jump on record in cross-border M&A compared with the first half of the year. Given the bounty of accumulated capital, deal-related compliance risks are likely to increase. As their cross-border businesses grow, corporate counsel must ensure compliance with anti-bribery, anti-corruption, anti-money-laundering, and anti-boycott statutes, conform to sanctions regimes and customs, export and import controls, and concurrently mitigate fraud risks and control deal-related costs.
Join the first of a three-part series of webinars designed to help clients:
- Identify business and legal risks in cross-border transactions
- Understand best practices in pre-transaction due diligence in cross-border M&A and post-transaction compliance in this rapidly evolving area
- Effectively conduct an internal investigation or defend and manage a government investigation
