Companies doing business in Thailand and across Southeast Asia are exposed to increasing legal and reputational risks. Regulations from the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act to Thailand’s wide-ranging corporate criminal laws can have significant repercussions on an organization. In many cases, directors and officers can also be criminally responsible for a company’s actions.
At the same time, corporate conduct is increasingly in the public eye. Stakeholders are engaged to ensure that companies are socially responsible actors. A single corporate scandal can have far-reaching implications for a company’s reputation and profits.
On July 14, Tilleke & Gibbins will host a client seminar to discuss how to design and implement an effective compliance program which can help reduce these risks and ensure your company operates legally and ethically. During the seminar, we will review:
- The influence of domestic and international laws on corporate compliance efforts
- Unique challenges for compliance within emerging Southeast Asian economies
- Framework for effective compliance in Thailand and Southeast Asia
- Tailoring a global program for the local environment
- Techniques to conduct risk assessments
- Responding to detected offenses
