A world without boundaries: The impact of U.S. and UK Investigations in Hong Kong & South East Asia

11 September 201412:15 PM - 2:00 PM (CST)

As jurisdictional boundaries become more blurred for businesses, governments and regulators, red flags raised in Asia could trigger a chain of global investigations impacting operations in Asia.

Hogan Lovells invites you to attend a panel discussion on the impact of U.S. and UK investigations, including sanctions, on corporates and individuals in Hong Kong and South East Asia.

Our partners from New York, London, Singapore and Hong Kong will explore recent investigations initiated by U.S. and UK regulators and explain why corporates and individuals ignore them at their own peril. The panel will look at the following recent cases:

  • U.S. SEC hiring probe;
  • Global forex scandal;
  • U.S. money laundering and sanctions violations;
  • Corruption investigations into the pharmaceutical and automotive industries in Asia

We hope you will be able to join us for this interactive and stimulating session involving lively dialogue amongst our panel and audience.
