For decades, the fight against corruption has been a priority of law enforcement in the United States. As businesses and markets become more global, that fight has become a cross-border effort that requires close inter-governmental cooperation and coordination. With constantly changing economic and political dynamics between the U.S. and Mexico, will law enforcement be affected? How may these challenges affect U.S.-Mexico cooperation in anti-corruption matters?

Please join us for a roundtable discussion with anti-corruption experts from both the U.S. and Mexico to discuss:

  • Lessons learned from prior enforcement matters in Latin America, specifically Mexico
  • How the new NAFTA could impact cross-border enforcement between Mexico and the U.S.
  • Developments and setbacks in Mexico’s fight against corruption, including the implementation of the Mexican National Anticorruption System
  • What companies can do to be ready to respond to a corruption-related crisis

Speakers will include:

  • Ruti Smithline (Partner, Morrison & Foerster)
  • James Koukios (Partner, Morrison & Foerster)
  • Rodolfo Barreda (Partner, Basham, Ringe y Correa, S.C.)
  • Julio Copo (Associate, Basham, Ringe y Correa, S.C.)

This event is presented by Morrison & Foerster and Basham Abogados.
