Foley invites you to a breakfast discussion with attorney Sherbir Panag of India-based MZM Legal. He, together with Foley Partner David Simon and Special Counsel John Turlais, will provide important perspectives on how companies can effectively navigate the legal and compliance challenges of conducting business in India.

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:

  • Developing effective compliance procedures and protocols that incorporate the cultural and legal sensitivities of the India market 
  • Conducting effective internal investigations in India 
  • Providing insight into how companies can better prepare themselves to resolve disputes arising in India 
  • Outlining India-specific best practices, from dispute prevention to documentation to alternative means of dispute resolution

Sherbir Panag is a partner with MZM, where he chairs the firm’s Compliance and Investigation Practice. Sherbir is a Chambers- and Legal 500-ranked Mumbai attorney who has handled financial fraud, corruption, asset recovery, breach of trust, cross-border disputes, and debarment matters, along with Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), U.K. Bribery Act, India’s Prevention of Corruption Act (PCA), and many other countries’ anti-corruption laws.

David Simon is a litigation partner who devotes much of his practice to helping corporate clients avoid and manage crises that potentially give rise to government enforcement actions. He provides compliance advice, conducts internal investigations, defends companies against enforcement actions, and represents companies in litigation. The FCPA is a principal focus of David’s practice. He has conducted several internal investigations in India and advises U.S. companies on India-related compliance issues. David is the co-developer of Foley Global Risk SolutionsSM, a flat-fee “virtual” FCPA counsel aimed at serving the middle-market business.

John Turlais is Special Counsel in Foley’s Milwaukee office. John focuses his practice on the FCPA, where he has experience in conducting risk assessments, developing compliance programs, and defending companies in enforcement actions. Along with David Simon, John is the co-developer of Foley Global Risk SolutionsSM.
