Panel: "Due process and procedural fairness for individuals in corproate bribery enforcement actions"
A strong focus on anti-bribery enforcement actions against corporations, coupled with widespread and increasing use of nontrial resolutions to conclude these cases, raises concerns about the rights and interests of individual defendants, including due process
and procedural fairness. This panel will explore this dichotomy, from the perspective of in-house corporate counsel, white-collar
