Coffee Break Compliance: A Global Compliance Broadcast Series presented by Dechert
Dechert invites compliance professionals and in-house counsel to join us for a short break, over a coffee or lunch, to consider the emerging compliance trends in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
As businesses globally are grappling with the complexities of a changing work environment and varying country safety requirements, our lawyers from around the world reflect on how these issues require companies to renew focus on compliance. This broadcast series will provide insight on several issues, such as actively considering Diversity and Inclusion within an effective compliance program, complying with cross-border tax and data transfer regulations, and handling internal and government investigations, including those relating to whistleblowers, tax evasion and employment issues.
For more information and guidance, please get in touch with one of the speakers on this broadcast or the Dechert lawyers with whom you work most closely.
