Economic Crimes in India and the Associated Investor Challenges – Corruption to Fraud featuring experts from Kobre & Kim and AZB & Partners
As we continue to see, India’s recent record of being a prominent investment destination endures. For 2015-2016, she recorded an economic growth of 7.6% and topped the World Bank’s growth outlook. Uncertain winds in the US are not poised to blow India off course. But with more sophisticated cross border investments come more challenges – including the risk of corruption, embezzlement and fraud. The recent spike in U.S. FCPA settlements relating to conduct in India, the UK Serious Fraud Office’s largest ever settlement that included conduct in India, and more SEC filings disclosing FCPA investigations in India highlight this point for multi-nationals.
Please join white collar crime and anti-corruption experts from India and the U.S. as they discuss what this attention means and the impact it will have on multinationals operating in India. Our speakers, Vasu Muthyala of Kobre and Kim, a former U.S. federal prosecutor, will discuss how global anti-corruption enforcement trends affect MNCs in India and how the new Administration in the US will impact FCPA enforcement. Rajendra Barot, head of dispute resolution and Senior Partner of AZB & Partners, will identify some high-risk areas for MNCs in India, discuss how white collar crimes and global anti-corruption enforcement trends are affecting MNCs in in the country and provide practical takeaways from our recent experiences.
