Compliance Investigations Workshop

Legal Ethics Compliance (LEC) will hold the Compliance Investigations Workshop in Rio de Janeiro on September 15th and 16th.

With the strengthening of the Compliance programs and the maturing of the compliance position in companies, the topic “Internal Investigations” assumes a fundamental importance, as it can not only mean compliance with the terms of the new anti-corruption law, but can avoid large fines by the control bodies , whether due to local law or international anti-corruption laws.

Date: September 15th and 16th

Location: Rio de Janeiro

Members and partners of the ETCO institute have a special discount on the registration fee for the Compliance Investigations Workshop, 15% for members and 5% for ETCO nominees.

Event discloses compliance outside the Rio-São Paulo axis

Since the approval of Law 12.846 / 2013, known as the Anti-Corruption Law, interest in integrity programs, or compliance, has grown a lot. The problem is that most of the courses and seminars on the subject take place on the Rio-São Paulo axis, where most of the companies with an interest in the topic are concentrated. “As a result, other regions end up being very lacking in information”, says Alessandra Gonsales, a partner at the law firm WFaria and Legal Ethics Compliance (LEC), a company that conducts courses and workshops on the subject.

To spread compliance in other cities in the country, LEC is taking one of its main events on the subject, Compliance Day, to other regions. The initiative has the support of the ETCO-Brazilian Institute for Competition Ethics. Previous editions took place in cities like Brasília, Porto Alegre and Curitiba. Now, there are events scheduled for Campinas, at the end of August, and Belo Horizonte, in October. “Outside the big centers, companies interested in implementing an integrity program end up making mistakes due to lack of knowledge”, says Alessandra.

Themes and audience

Compliance Day editions consist of a series of speeches by experts and last for one day. Among the themes of the presentations, there are some of the points that generate more doubts or concerns on the part of companies, such as the criminal compliance, or managers' criminal liability, and financial compliance, which deals with aspects of money laundering. There is also much discussion about the changes brought about by the Anticorruption Law, with a comparison of the text implemented in Brazil and the legislation of other countries.

The audience is varied. "The demand comes from the most diverse types of companies and executive profiles," says Alessandra. Among the participants, there are professionals from small, medium and large companies, responsible for both the compliance area and related sectors, such as the legal department, in the case of companies that have not yet implemented specific departments to address this issue.
