After almost 10 years of enforcement of the Anti-corruption Act in Brazil (Law 12,846/13), focused on the liability of legal persons, and given the discussions in Germany triggered by the previous government’s Bill on Strengthening Integrity in Business that had proposed a reform of Germany’s corporate liability, the event aims to work as a relevant space for the exchange of experiences about corporate liability, especially regarding acts of corruption. Despite the differences in their legal systems, Brazil and Germany are currently addressing the need for a fair and adequate response to corporate offence towards the strengthening of business integrity.
In this context, the workshop is dedicated to bridge perspectives among practitioners and academics from both countries on topics such as the frameworks of anti-corruption enforcement, the complexities of the prosecution of legal entities, the role of different institutions in this scenario and the impact of compliance programs in the mitigation of sanctions. The main goal is to exchange experiences and lessons learned from Germany and Brazil in this field.
The workshop will be divided into two roundtables composed by a multistakeholder representation. The event will be exclusively online, via Zoom, and with simultaneous translation Portuguese-English in order to reach participants from both countries.
