Dr. Jesse David, a partner at Edgeworth Economics, and Mr. Charles Sipos, a partner at Perkins Coie, will analyze the predominance requirement of Rule 23 from both economic and legal perspectives. Mr. Sipos will analyze damages decisions for food labeling class actions in the leading jurisdictions, discussing those courts' approaches to the levels of proof required for damages at both the class certification and summary judgment stage.

A number of excess insurance companies argue that any compromise between the policyholder and an underlying carrier should result in the policyholder losing all excess coverage. It's time for policyholders and their brokers to just say no to wordings in their policies that may yield such an inequitable result.

The panel will encourage all parties to support the proposition that excess coverage is triggered by the amount of the liability, rather than who will be responsible for payment. Such an approach will not only reduce litigation, but foster better relationships, compromise and stability among policyholders, underlying and excess insurers.

Anti-Corruption Developments in the BRICS/’Carbon Copy’ Prosecutions
Panelist
Fifth Annual National Institute on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act 
Westin Georgetown / Washington, D.C.

The United States government is credited with bringing nearly 3 out of every 4 foreign anti-bribery cases worldwide, with Great Britain coming in at a distant second. But in the last several years, other countries as well as international organizations such as the World Bank, have begun to flex their anti-corruption muscle. This panel explores a variety of global anti-corruption developments, including the rising tide of a new enforcement phenomenon known as “carbon copy” prosecutions. This panel not only discusses how the very existence of these carbon copy actions has altered the way in which companies handle FCPA investigations, but also offers real world, practical insights on the subject.

The Similarities Between FCPA Compliance and Supply Chain Compliance

Global businesses are facing unique compliance and third-party due diligence challenges as a result of new and pending legal requirements, such as those found in the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act, the European Union Directive on Transparency and its amendments, the Dodd-Frank Act’s pending “conflict minerals” disclosure rules, and the proposed federal Business Transparency on Trafficking and Slavery Act. This panel explores many of these new legal frameworks and evaluates the economies of scale that can be achieved by closely integrating corporate social responsibility and supply-chain issues into a comprehensive FCPA/anti-corruption compliance program.
