Second Global White Collar Crime Institute - Sao Paulo, Brazil

In 2015, I launched the Inaugural ABA Criminal Justice Section Global White Collar Crime Institute in Shanghai, China.  It was an incredible success and brought together practitioners, government officials, judges, consultants, and academics to discuss some of the most important issues in the field. 

I’m please to announce that the Second Global White Collar Crime Institute will be held in Sao Paulo, Brazil on June 7-8, 2017 at the Law Offices of Trench Rossi Watanabe.  The program is now available online, and it is shaping up to be another spectacular event. 

The program includes the following panels:

·      A Prosecutor’s View of Global White Collar Crime from Investigation to Sentencing
·      Navigating Cross Border Government Investigations and Prosecutions
·      Trends Regarding Global Anti-Corruption Enforcement
·      A View of Global White Collar Crime from the Bench
·      Preparing for the Globalization of Corporate Internal Investigations
·      Navigating Global Compliance Trends and global Enforcement Priorities

I hope you will be able to join me for this engaging and informative conference in one of the world’s most active white collar enforcement environments.  Register here while space is still available.

ABA CJS Hong Kong Conference - Global Investigations and Compliance

As many readers know, I am heavily involved in planning international white collar crime conferences with the American Bar Association Criminal Justice Section.  These have become wonderful learning and networking opportunities for those with an interest in the many issues in the field that transcend national boundaries. 

I’m excited to announce the next international conference offering will occur on April 5, 2017 in Hong Kong.  The event will focus on Global Investigations and Compliance:  From Regulatory Trends to Leveraging Innovation and Technology.  I expect this conference to be a wonderful compliment to the successful Global White Collar Crime Institute the American Bar Association held in Shanghai in 2015.  If you attended the Shanghai event, I hope you will join us again and reconnect with the many colleagues and contacts you established at that earlier conference.  If you were not in attendance in Shanghai, I hope you will join us in Hong Kong and be introduced to the growing network of international professionals making these American Bar Association white collar conferences an important part of their network. 

Seating is limited for this event, and I hope you will register today to reserve your spot (click here to register).  I look forward to seeing many of you in April.
