9th Global Forum on Anti-Corruption Compliance in High Risk Markets

On July 26, McNiven will participate as a panelist in a session titled, “Addressing and Solving Sophisticated Compliance Issues for Companies Doing Business in India: The Travel Act and Beyond.” Panelists will discuss risk reduction strategies in structuring a business in India, Travel Act exposure risk, corporate fraud and misconduct, due diligence issues, fair market value in real estate transactions, and counseling a company’s C-Suite regarding criminal exposure for civil violations.

She has advised multiple public companies under U.S. Department of Justice and SEC investigation on global anti-bribery and corruption compliance, and spent over a year imbedded in India developing an anti-corruption compliance program for a Fortune 50 company. She has advised numerous U.S. companies on how to navigate the challenging enforcement environment in India successfully, and has written and spoken widely on the government’s use of the Travel Act to prosecute commercial kickbacks.
