The last months have witnessed several compliance scandals including the ongoing FIFA corruption investigation, the aftermath of the operation “Car Wash”, the Volkswagen Diesel Scandal, Deutsche Bank’s Russian desk investigation and heavy settlements involving corporations and banks. They once again highlight the multitude of risks faced by businesses around the world. The Panama leaks of offshore fi nancial records have revealed a global display of crime and corruption but importantly weaknesses in corporate internal control systems, putting tax avoidance and tax compliance at the top of the agenda for companies.

C5’s 12th Advanced Conference on International Compliance, Legal Risks and Corporate Integrity is designed to refl ect the realities of modern compliance, ethics and legal roles.

The conference gathers senior representatives of the District Court of Munich I, the Tax Court of Münster and the Prosecutor General’s Office Frankfurt.

Keynote speakers include Anton Winkler, Presiding Judge, District Court, Munich I, Dr. Ulrich Bergmoser, Director for Finance, HR and Compliance, Deutscher Fußball-Bund e.V. (DFB) and Nicola Bonucci, Director for Legal Affairs, OECD.

Join the event where the European legal, ethics and compliance community meet every January in Frankfurt. You will be an active part of an experience-sharing advanced conference on how to evaluate compliance programme components, respond to issues as they arise and monitor internal controls to maintain ongoing compliance.

Whether you are just joining the legal, compliance and integrity community or a highly seasoned practitioner, this programme is not to be missed. You will hear from leading practitioners, in-house counsel and compliance executives who face compliance risks on a daily basis, from corruption, bribery, anti-money laundering, tax compliance, human right compliance, supply chain compliance risks and other emerging risks.
