Foley Partner David Simon, a member of the firm's FCPA & Anti-Corruption practice, will be speaking at the Society of Corporate Compliance & Ethics 15th Annual Compliance & Ethics Institute, on September 27, 2016.
Simon will be a panelist for the session, “Compliance Challenges in India: Why Your Compliance Program May Not Translate.” The discussion will focus on the following topics and trends:

What unique challenges are posed by the legal and enforcement landscape in India? Consider enforcement trends that foreign companies need to note and the unique role criminal law plays in commercial disputes.
How can challenges for US based in-house professionals and outside lawyers conducting internal investigations in India be mitigated? Reflect on cultural, legal and practical implications of conducting cross border work.
