Paul Hasting's Investigations and White Collar Defense Partner Robert Luskin will be speaking at the New York University (NYU) conference in NY on November 9.

During this conference, Mr. Luskin will be a panelist for “Corporate Liability for Foreign Bribery” from 3:30–4:30pm.  

Corporate Liability for Foreign BriberyArticle 2 of the Anti-Bribery Convention requires Parties to make corporations and other legal entities responsible for foreign bribery, and Annex I of the 2009 Recommendation clarifies the standards for this purpose. The standards for corporate liability under the Convention have been a catalyst for significant law reform by the Parties to the Convention. Despite major inroads, many Parties still struggle with certain challenges to investigating and prosecuting legal entities. This panel explores some of the most significant challenges and how to overcome them, including successor liability, investigating and prosecuting companies and other legal arrangements where the beneficial owner is a trust, and attributing liability to a company for the acts of its subsidiary abroad.

Speakers:

  • Robert Luskin, Paul Hastings, LLP

  • Pascale Hélène Dubois, Vice President for Integrity, The World Bank

  • Prof. Samuel Buell, Duke University School of Law

Location:New York University School of Law, Greenberg Lounge, 40 Washington Square South, First Floor, New York
