Recent corruption scandals and ongoing investigations of various sectors has brought media attention to the increasing challenges for compliance. As Chinese regulators strengthen their scrutiny, many multinational companies have found themselves in difficulties when they try to expand and compete in markets with different standards, market conditions, culture and legal environments. Even companies with the most sophisticated compliance programs have on occasion been shown not to be able to protect themselves effectively. China is committed to putting an end to corruption, and the efforts are targeting multinationals as well as Chinese companies.
To mitigate the increasing risks and address common challenges, there are advantages for multinational companies to work together constructively to improve their own compliance systems as well as the business environment. The program will host speaker James Zimmerman, the author of the China Law Deskbook and the managing partner for the Beijing office of Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton LLP.
