Business Ethics – Ethical lobbying : how far can we go ?

Part 2 – How the French anti-corruption laws have changed and practical tips on how to manage multi-jurisdictionnal investigations

1. Provide an overview of the key provisions of the Sapin II law, how the French-style deferred prosecution agreement works, explain the similarities and differences with the tools available in the US and UK.
