Compliance Matters: How Anti-Corruption, Anti-Trust and Regulatory Enforcement Impacts Business in Other Countries

Join Dickinson Wright Lawyer Brenda C. Swick and the American Bar Association’s International Procurement Committee for “Compliance Matters: How Anti-Corruption, Anti-Trust and Regulatory Enforcement Impacts Business in Other Countries” on October 22, 2015 from 11:00 – 12:30 p.m. at the Fairmont the Queen Elizabeth in Montreal. This panel is part of the ABA Section of International Law’s 2015 Fall Meeting.

In this panel, lawyers from the US, Germany, Brazil and Canada will explain how convictions relating to anti-corruption, antitrust, export control or other regulatory statutes by a company, or their foreign affiliates, can impede the ability of companies to do business domestically and abroad. The panel will also provide practical tips on how to design a robust compliance program to avoid unforeseen extraterritorial implications.

Joining Ms. Swick on the panel will be Renata Andrade from Fonseca Andrade Advocacia in Sao Paulo, Brazil; Louis-Martin Richer from WSP Global Inc., in Montreal; Bernd Janzen from Akin Gump in Washington, D.C.; and Martin Raible from Gleiss Lutz in Dusseldorf, Germany. The panel will be moderated by Martin Masse from McMillan LLP in Ottawa, Canada.

Ms. Swick is a Partner in the firm’s Toronto office. She focuses on international trade, government contracting, anti-corruption and regulatory compliance with the laws governing the cross border trade in goods, services and technology including judicial review of government decisions. She is a leading expert on government contracting and has represented clients in bid disputes before the Canadian International Trade Tribunal and courts. She regularly advises clients on Canada’s international trade and investment agreements, including investor state disputes under Chapter 11 of the NAFTA.
