The Cutting Edge of Compliance: Best Practices and Recent Developments in Anticorruption, Investigations and Responding to Government Enforcement

Proactive anticorruption compliance programs, risk assessments and detailed due diligence practices can make the world of difference when engaging in global business transactions. Join us for a one-on-one discussion with Jonathan Drimmer, Deputy General Counsel at Barrick Gold, to hear his first-hand experience on the cutting edge of compliance and how proactive efforts can safe-guard your business in foreign jurisdictions.

Topics:

  • Canada’s new deferred prosecution agreement regime and other key updates
  • Internal investigations
  • Compliance programs and risk assessments
