Asset Tracing and Recovery across jurisdiction

Date: 16 April 2020
Time: 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

With increasing globalisation and integration of financial systems across the globe, the proceeds of financial crime can be hidden across multiple jurisdictions.

In several cases, legislation limitations constrain organisation’s ability to carry out multi-jurisdictional inquiries and asset tracing activities.

But the situation is now changing. Thanks to the growing global collaboration that aims to curb willful defaults that can cripple economic progress. Recently, the Indian Government designated the United Arab Emirates (UAE) as a “reciprocating territory” for the purpose of execution of the decrees of UAE courts in India by allowing banks and financial institutions in the UAE to take legal proceedings against loan defaulters by recovering debts, and identifying defaulters who may have fled to India.

Deloitte India is organised a webinar to discuss how organisations can leverage asset tracing practices across jurisdictions.

Potential impact of COVID-19 on Anti-bribery and Corruption compliances

Date: 13 April 2020
Time: 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Organisations are exposed to several risks, owing to the business disruptions adopted to tackle the spread of COVID-19. The risk of bribery and corruption remains high. As organisations battle for survival, it can be tempting to deprioritise anti-bribery and corruption (ABC) compliance, to meet business priorities.

However, past experience shows that adhering to anti-bribery and corruption compliance programmes not only help organisations tide over tough times, but also enhance their reputation. Let us better understand the potential risks in light of COVID-19, and measures to mitigate them.

To help you understand this, we hosted a webinar on 13 April 2020 that primarily focused on:

  • Overview of the ABC regulatory and enforcement landscape during COVID-19
  • Heightened risks, and examples from the past
  • Risk of sources of corruption
  • Best practices followed by the companies 
  • Re-defining ethical boundaries within organisations

Law Firm Solution : The role of expert in commercial

Date: 31 March 2020
Time: 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

The rapid globalisation of world economies has led to an increased emergence of disputes across sectors. Arbitration, given its potential for flexibility, cost effectiveness and timeliness, is increasingly being preferred by organisations (among the various alternative dispute resolution mechanisms) to settle commercial disputes that have significant financial exposure.

The role of an expert is to independently examine the facts of the case and thereby provide the arbitration tribunal with specific subject matter information to assist them in making informed decisions regarding the dispute.

An expert may be appointed jointly or by either party to the dispute, can help provide a realistic expectation of the settlement outcome, facilitating informed decision making and helping obtain a prompt and fair settlement.

Disputes, particularly those in the commercial arbitration space, involve complex issues that often require technical application pertaining to concepts rooted in finance and economics, in addition to industry specific expertise. The involvement of a subject matter expert brings in an added degree of reliability and ensures that facts are accurately presented in an unbiased manner, to help resolve the dispute efficiently.

Mitigating cross-border transaction risks

Date: 20 Feburary 2020
Time: 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. 

India has seen over 3,600 cross border transactions and deals in the last five years. The Foreign Direct Investment in the first eight months of 2019-2020 has been over of $22.4 billion, thereby indicating that more transactions may materialise.

However despite this aggressive pace, the post-transaction experience has left much to be desired for many companies. Several companies have faced legal, financial and reputational damages upon discovery of possible fraud, mismanagement and other corporate malpractice arising from inadequate internal controls and poor governance structures.

To better manage such situations it is important for legal professionals to undertake thorough due diligence on the entities involved.
