Managing investigations in China


Investigation work is replete with legal and practical issues for which there is not always one appropriate resolution. In recent years, organisations of all sizes, sectors, and markets have been faced with managing internal investigations in response to an increase in white-collar crime and misconduct risks.

This webinar, brought to you by The Legal 500 and Fangda Partners, is designed to provide general counsel and risk and compliance professionals with guidance on the practical steps that can be taken to mitigate, manage and overcome the different stages of an investigation in China, from the initial complaint to the final outcome.

We will discuss the expectations of governance, compliance and self-reporting regarding an increased risk of fraud and bribery. The session also covers the key practical issues for employers to consider when carrying out multi-jurisdictional investigations, including the supply chain compliance perspective and the handling of personal information, and provides tips for engagement with foreign authorities and regulators.

Discussion points include:

  • Internal and external investigation trigger: whistleblowing systems.
  • Impact on corporate liability.
  • Conducting investigations in China.
  • Increased concerns in relation to supply chain compliance and human rights.
  • Practical tips related to the handling of personal information during multi-jurisdictional investigations.
