25 MAY – Anti-Corruption and Internal Investigations

Tuesday, May 25, 2021

Anti-corruption and other internal compliance issues are perennial concerns for foreign companies in Southeast Asia, but when allegations or suspicions arise, many find investigations to be a daunting challenge. However, businesses properly armed with a practical understanding of the investigation process and a clear understanding of the issues unique to their jurisdictions need not be intimidated by the prospect.

To assist companies in Cambodia, Laos, and Myanmar with this vital skill, regional Southeast Asian law firm Tilleke & Gibbins has teamed up with global law firm DLA Piper and the Australian Chambers of Commerce in Cambodia, Laos, and Myanmar, to host a webinar on how to navigate these issues.

Maurice Burke, head of investigations in Asia at DLA Piper, will open the session with a discussion of the broad issues that Australian companies should be mindful of when investing and operating in Southeast Asia, before handing over to Michael Ramirez, counsel in Tilleke & Gibbins’ regional compliance and investigations team, for a practical overview of the internal investigations process. With the groundwork laid, Jay Cohen, Dino Santaniello and Ross Taylor, from Tilleke & Gibbins offices in Phnom Penh, Vientiane, and Yangon, will explore the unique issues that arise in investigations in each of their jurisdictions, before all speakers regroup for a roundtable discussion of questions and answers submitted by attendees.
