    Trends in Enforcement, Self-Regulation & Corporate Governance

    Current trends in regulatory and criminal law in Italy, the UK and US require varying degrees of selfregulation as a means of deterring fraudulent and criminal conduct. This panel will explore the legal requirements in these jurisdictions and highlight the trends in enforcement of these requirements by regulatory agencies focusing on cross-border implications.

    The Consequences of Failure in Self-Regulation

    Failures in self-regulation may lead to regulatory sanctions and criminal penalties. This panel will discuss actions the company should take in the event of failure of self-regulation, including the need to retain outside counsel, conduct internal investigations, self-report in various jurisdictions, and in some instances, defend itself against regulatory or criminal proceedings.

    Corporate Governance & Compliance as Vehicles for the Protection of the Corporation

    Establishing adequate and appropriate corporate governance mechanisms has become a primary step in preventing breaches in self-regulation and identifying and investigating possible breaches as they arise. This panel will focus on current legal and other standards for corporate governance within the framework of effective self-regulation, especially as they apply to public companies, and ways to use corporate governance as a method of self-regulation.
