EventNovember 07, 2018Humboldt University, Berlin, Germany

LSW partner Gabi Friedman offered her insights about the American perspective on cross-border investigations as a panelist at the Symposium on the Future of Internal Investigations in Germany, held at Humboldt University in Berlin, Germany. Sponsored by the Faculty of Law, the panel discussed corporate internal investigations, particularly the draft German legislation about corporate misconduct and the future of internal investigations in Germany. As the the only non-German lawyer on the panel, Gabi compared and contrasted the evolving German rules on corporate criminal liability and internal investigations with the American experience. Gabi’s presentation, in German, centered on practical observations for defense counsel when a non-U.S. individual is involved in a U.S.-style internal investigation.
