For those attending this year's ABA Annual Meeting in Boston, I wanted to alert you to a roundtable discussion occurring on Friday, August 8 from 3-5pm (Room 308, Level 3, Hynes Convention Center) entitled Navigating the White Collar Crime Landscape in China.
The event, which is co-sponsored by the Chinese Business Lawyers Association, will focus on emerging trends and challenges in the field of white collar crime in China. The event will begin with short presentations by a host of experts in the area, each of whom will offer their own unique insights. Following these brief introductory remarks, everyone in attendance will participate in an open dialogue. During the discussion portion of the program, panelists and audience members are encouraged to ask questions and share insights and experiences. It is anticipated that a wide variety of topics will be discussed and analyzed during this roundtable discussion, including strategies for conducting corporate internal investigations, advice for dealing with government agencies, best practices for corporate compliance, and current trends regarding cybercrime and corporate espionage, whistle-blower programs, anti-corruption enforcement, money laundering, and trade violations.
I will be moderating the program and will be joined by the following featured discussants:
Ronald Cheng - USAO, Central District of California
William McGovern - Kobre & Kim LLP, Hong Kong
Karen Popp - Sidley Austin LLP, Washington DC
Zaldwaynaka (Z) Scott - Kaye Scholer LLP, Chicago, Illinois
Philip Urofsky - Shearman & Sterling LLP, Washington, DC
Keith Williamson - Alvarez & Marsal, Hong Kong
Debra Yang - Gibson Dunn, Los Angeles, California
It should be a wonderful event. I hope to see some of our readers there.
