Global Regulation and Cross-Border Disputes

by JAMS International on 08-Oct-2013 11:00:00


In association with Epiq Systems, The Lawyer Roundtable Discussion – Global Regulation and Cross-Border Disputes – will be chaired by Matthew Rushton, Deputy Managing Director, JAMS International.

The global business landscape is evolving rapidly as organisations face a more difficult regulatory environment than ever before. Regulators across different jurisdictions may act alone or in concert to impose diverse information requirements on businesses while commercial disputes are increasingly cross-border in nature.

 For GCs, heads of compliance, heads of risk and other senior legal professionals working against this shifting backdrop, the sheer volume of communications, documents and data created by their organisations can create a serious risk to the business. This roundtable will bring together the legal leadership from large corporates as well as litigation and regulatory partners from leading law firms to discuss the challenges and key issues which a globalised, digital world throws up.

Discussion Points:

  • When responding to this potential wave of requests, what practical and legal challenges exist?
  • When your business is under investigation or conducting internal investigation to determine culpability, what should you do?
  • What challenges have you encountered when transferring information across borders to satisfy requests from foreign regulators or due to involvement in foreign proceedings?
  • The trend for multiple regulators to become involved in investigations has increased as regulators coordinate globally. How well is your organisation coordinating its response to multiple legal requests?
