ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED FOR 11/10, THIS CLE WEBINAR IS NOW RESCHEDULED TO 12/14. PLEASE REGISTER IF YOU ARE ABLE TO JOIN US!

In an effort to expand into a foreign market, you have recently been notified that your company is considering a potential merger with company X. Company X operates in a jurisdiction known to present a high risk of corruption. How do you assess whether to proceed? What can a US company do to protect itself from potential successor liability if it turns out that company X has made improper payments? How much can be done pre-acquisition? What are the limits of due diligence in these circumstances? What can be done post-closing to protect the company from allegations of misconduct that occurred pre-transaction?

This program will explore best practices, provide practical guidance and focus on recently released guidance by the Department of Justice addressing these issues.

ADVANCE REGISTRATION NOTICE- Please note that advance registration is required for ACC NYC Webinars. Unless otherwise noted, registration will end three hours prior to the event start time. This enables us to administrate best practices for our virtual events. Thank you for your cooperation!
