The event will kick off with opening remarks from the co-chairs before diving into a roundtable session where speakers look back at developments ten years on since Brazil’s Clean Company Act was first implemented in the wake of the infamous Lava Jato scandal. The panel will discuss the challenges and realities of enforcing the law and the importance of collaborating with global enforcement agencies.
Following a short coffee break, the second panel will see experienced defence practitioners share their own analysis and unique perspective of how Brazil has evolved ten years on from the Clean Company Act, responding to points made in the previous panel and providing a future outlook on what lies ahead for the South American country.
The third panel will see leading anti-corruption lawyers from multiple Latin American jurisdictions speak about the most relevant developments in the region’s enforcement trends, with a particular focus on money laundering and compliance.
After the networking lunch, delegates are invited to a discussion focusing on financial fraud. Some of the topics that the speakers will touch upon during the panel include the current high level of scrutiny with respect to disclosure obligations reserved for companies, prominent financial fraud cases in the US, and the rise of white-collar crime and financial fraud in post-pandemic Brazil.
Following another coffee break, the final panel discussion of the day will focus on ESG compliance in corporate strategy and decision-making. The talk will cover how ESG compliance has witnessed a shift from soft law to hard law, while speakers will also discuss ways of sharpening legal guidelines and compliance programmes to ensure that companies meet ESG obligations effectively.
The day will conclude with the closing remarks from the events co-chairs, before all attendees are invited to round off the event by attending a drinks reception hosted on behalf of Brazil's TozziniFreire Advogados.
