The Technology, Media and Telecommunication Industry (TMT) sub committee of ACC Hong Kong invites you to the following breakfast event, hosted by Conventus Law.

TOPIC: Business Leaders in Law - Anti-Corruption Law and Trends in Asia

Enjoy breakfast whilst discussing recent developments in anti-corruption law and enforcement trends in Asia, with a special focus on how general and regional counsels as business leaders can conduct cost effective and reliable third party investigations, and handle cross-border investigations and enforcement in a way that would adequately defend and protect their company clients’ multi-jurisdictional businesses in the region.
