Lesli Ligorner, Partner in Paul Hastings Employment Law department in Shanghai, will moderate April 30's panel at 2:00 pm entitled "Latest Developments in Anti-Corruption Laws in Asia."
Synopsis: Anti-corruption measures are sweeping the globe. With the ratification and implementation of the United Nations Convention Against Corruption now in place, most Pacific Rim countries also have local legislation addressing corruption. Moreover, enforcement action worldwide has increased dramatically in the last year and many enforcement agencies are increasingly cooperating in cross-border investigations. This panel will feature speakers from different Pacific Rim jurisdictions to update us on recent developments, including the framework of anti-corruption laws and practices in their jurisdictions as well as recent cases and other developments from their home countries.
