Debevoise & Plimpton partner Andrew M. Levine will be among panelists discussing minimizing corruption risks at the 9th Global Forum on Anti-Corruption Compliance in High Risk Markets. Presented by the American Conference Institute, Mr. Levine’s panel will address how to minimize corruption risks in consortia and M&A transactions that involve an asset or seller under investigation.
Specific topics of conversation will include successor liability risks, use of consortia as investment vehicles and how “tainted” companies or assets can be attractive targets even when subject to investigation or compliance monitoring.
