India has emerged as a leading business destination for many U.S.-based and multinational companies. While India’s recent economic growth has created considerable opportunities, companies conducting business in India face many challenges, including, most notably, addressing compliance concerns relating to bribery and corruption, and managing legal disputes in a complex, bureaucratic legal system. The discussion will focus on practical strategies for implementing compliance programs, and approaching and resolving disputes within the Indian legal framework, including:
