DoJ in London – Transatlantic enforcement and beyond: what’s next for cross-border investigations?

We are delighted to invite you to the breakfast seminar Transatlantic enforcement and beyond: what’s next for cross-border investigations? on 19 October including senior leaders of the US Department of Justice (DoJ) Fraud Section. Within the Criminal Division of the DoJ, the Fraud Section has played a significant role in prominent multi-jurisdictional investigations, including matters focusing on the financial markets and enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

The most significant criminal enforcement cases are invariably cross-border in nature. The range of jurisdictions that participate in resolutions is expanding, but there is one consistent feature – the relevance of the approach that the US agencies take. Whether that means entering into direct negotiation with the DoJ, the SEC or others, or factoring their potential interest into an investigation strategy, the US dimension is frequently determinative. Together, we’ll explore:
  • What is the current thinking in the DoJ when it comes to enforcement against international businesses?
  • Should we expect changes in DoJ policies, practices, and priorities in the near term?
  • How can companies and their counsel best respond to the challenges that arise in multi-jurisdictional investigations?
  • Looking ahead, are coordinated international resolutions more likely, and if so, what is the emerging best practice?
  • Sandra Moser, Acting Chief of the US DoJ Fraud section
  • Robert Zink, Acting Principal Deputy Chief, DoJ
  • Harsh Trivedi, Managing Director, Associate General Counsel, J.P. Morgan
  • Clare Montgomery QC, Matrix Chambers
