2009 International Legal Trends Conference

    This year's program, outlined below, focuses on practical solutions for protecting your company's global interests, managing risk and navigating cross-border litigations, investigations and enforcement proceedings in the U.S., Europe and Asia.


    Overview of 2009 Report on Trends and Developments in International Legal Practice
    Presented by:
    Louis M. Solomon, Partner, Proskauer Rose LLP
    Jennifer R. Scullion, Partner, Proskauer Rose LLP

    Highlights of the most significant legal and practical trends in international practice for 2009, covering recent judicial, legislative, and commercial developments. This presentation (and accompanying report) follows in the footsteps of our 2008 Trends Report.

    Foreign Corrupt Practices Act: Strategies for building an effective international compliance program
    Presented by:
    Matthew S. Queler, Partner, Proskauer Rose LLP
    Emily Stern, Senior Counsel, Proskauer Rose LLP
    Manny Alas, Partner, Co-Leader of Global FCPA at PricewaterhouseCoopers

    The U.S. has been aggressively enforcing the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act in recent years, leading a world-wide trend toward increased enforcement of anti-corruption measures in other jurisdictions. This presentation will focus on the practical issues surrounding FCPA compliance and risk management, including recent enforcement history and future trends. It will also outline the structure and key components of an effective anti-corruption compliance program that can withstand the scrutiny of U.S. regulators.

    Competition law: Compliance and enforcement -- A view from Washington and the EU
    Presented by:
    Philippe Goossens, Partner, Proskauer Rose LLP

    Alicia J. Batts, Partner, Proskauer Rose LLP
    Mark J. Biros, Partner, Proskauer Rose LLP
    Michael S. Lazaroff, Senior Counsel, Proskauer Rose LLP

    A multipart discussion addressing increased civil and criminal antitrust enforcement in the EU, and corresponding efforts by U.S. enforcement agencies. The discussion will address current developments and trends emanating from Europe, what we can expect from the new administration in Washington, and the practical steps your company can take to manage the risk of increased enforcement.

    Securities regulations and investigations: Regulatory responses to the global financial crisis in the U.S., U.K. and Hong Kong
    Presented by:
    Ronald E. Wood, Partner, Proskauer Rose LLP
    William Yonge, Partner, Proskauer Rose LLP
    David Sapin, Principal of Financial Services Regulatory Practice at PricewaterhouseCoopers

    The global financial crisis has already spurred a flurry of regulatory changes in the securities industry, and there is talk of more to come. This presentation will provide an overview of recent changes and trends in the regulation of short-selling in the U.S. and the U.K., as well as international developments and trends relating to hedge fund oversight and best practices. It will also provide a primer on how, in a variety of ways, the current crisis is spurring revolutionary regulatory change in Hong Kong, Asia's most business friendly market.

      "it is terrific!  I think it's well done, great for issue spotting, well written, well organized, user friendly, etc. quite a lot of work"

    • Another review calls it a "welcome compendium", with a "practical focus", "presented simply and effectively", "tackling... issues that are not commonly discussed in the traditional model of private international law texts" and are "particularly helpful to the practitioner aiming, in the author's words, to 'present clients with strategic choices'"; "A useful tool it certainly is".
