Event Overview:
An understanding of local law is critical in reporting the findings of a cross-border investigation, according to KPMG's new study, "Cross-border Investigations: Are You Prepared for the Challenge?" Careful attention to the form and content of a report is required. Certain countries may compel a release of the report to subjects, which can lead to privacy, defamation or other employment rights claims. Companies may want to consider establishing proper data export channels proactively to avoid difficult situations.

Included will be a discussion of: Assessing the existing response protocols, including reporting and disclosure procedures, Understanding local laws when reporting the findings of a cross-border investigation, Leading practices for providing a report – oral or written, How to avoid conflicts around reporting restrictions and requirements Our distinguished panel of speakers face the legal and business challenges posed by cross-border investigations on an everyday basis: Vince Draa, vice president and general counsel, Grainger International, Peter Spivack, partner, Hogan Lovells US LLP, Corey Martens, partner, Forensic Investigations, KPMG LLP, Peter Bradford, managing director, Anti-Bribery and Corruption Services, KPMG LLP
