[row][paragraph_left] You are cordially invited to a lively, practical discussion hosted by Baker & McKenzie LLP in partnership with the French-American Chamber of Commerce. This event will explore the sanctions regimes of development banks, in parallel with those of the U.S. Department of Justice (“U.S. DOJ”) and Securities and Exchange Commission.  A panel of experts will share observations on the evolving sanctions landscape and will provide practical guidance to companies in order to avoid unwanted enforcement scrutiny. A particular focus will be devoted to the impact of the OECD anti-corruption treaty on signatories, including France and other countries with recently-enacted anti-corruption legislation. This event will bring together representatives from the U.S. DOJ, multilateral development banks, the French Embassy, and members of the private sector interacting with multilateral institutions and/or doing business in Europe. Our distinguished panel of experts will include: Pascale Dubois Chief Suspension and Debarment Officer, Office of Suspension and Debarment (OSD), the World Bank; Shruti Shah Vice President at Transparency International USA; Graham Joscelyne Global Fund Audit and Ethics Committee Chair and formerly with the World Bank Group. The panel will be moderated by Brian Whisler, Partner at Baker & McKenzie LLP in the Compliance, Investigations and Government Enforcement Practice Group, and former federal prosecutor with the U.S. DOJ. The discussion will be followed by a reception overlooking the White House. If you would like to attend this event, please register now as space is limited. We hope that you will be able to join us and look forward to welcoming you at this special event. [/paragraph_left] [third_paragraph]
