The partners of Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer are inviting readers of the FCPA Blog to a Global Investigations breakfast to discuss resolving fraud and corruption investigations by the World Bank and Inter-American Development Bank related to the more than $71 billion in corporate contracts they fund each year.

Global investigations by the Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs) are on the rise -- in the first quarter of 2017, the World Bank has debarred 31 entities (including cross-debarments). And with more cooperation among regulators and the MDBs, multinational companies may find misconduct in one part of their business can have far-reaching consequences.

Opening remarks will be provided by:

Leonard McCarthy, Integrity Vice President of the World Bank Group

Panellists include:

Stephen Zimmermann, Director of Operations for the World Bank’s Integrity Vice Presidency

Maristella Aldana, Chief of the Office of Institutional Integrity, Inter-American  Development Bank

Geoff Nicholas, Co-Head of the Global Investigations practice of Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer

The topics for discussion include:

The panel will be moderated by Daniel Braun of Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer’s Washington Office.

When:       09:00AM-10:30AM, Friday, April 21, 2017

Where:      Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer 
                    700 13th St, Washington, DC
