Speaker: John Keefe, Goodmans LLP

This session will focus on:

  • How to evaluate a target’s anti-corruption compliance through the analysis of its governing legal framework, policies and procedures, training, auditing and internal controls and historical risk issues
  • What to do if pre-merger due diligence efforts reveal problems: evaluating public disclosure obligations under ad hoc and materiality standards; pros and cons of disclosure to authorities in relevant countries; situations that warrant additional due diligence
    or investigatory work; role of outside counsel and forensic auditors; interviews/evidence summaries/real time updates
  • Assessing regulatory risks prior to closing and other transactional issues
  • Post-closing issues to consider compliance programs and internal controls in the new entity; evaluating post-closing disclosure obligations; addressing post-closing investigations and regulatory obligations
