Vinge Breakfast Seminar (Stockholm) @ Hotell Anglais

On Monday 2 March, I will be visiting Stockholm to be interviewed by Advokatfirman Vinge’s Mia Falk, former Detective Inspector and corruption investigator within the Police and the United Nations. The interview will focus on what actions can be taken to prevent and detect corruption. What measures and ‘clues’ may have revealed earlier that I had regularly paid bribes in exchange for business opportunities? And what can Swedish companies do to minimize the risk of employees and business partners bribing on their behalf? RSVP not later than 25 February 2020. We apply the “first come, first served” principle so the event may be fully booked prior to the last notification date. Please contact Malin Arentoft if you have any questions, [email protected]

The Challenges of Cross-Border Investigations in a Data-Privacy World with Patrik Borjesson, Head of Investigation, Volvo Cars and Helge Kvamme, CEO and Founder, Kvamme Associates AS

  • In a world that is embracing data-privacy, how can investigators conduct robust and fair internal investigations, respecting the privacy and privacy laws of individuals and countries, while at the same time meeting their obligations to identify and address potential wrongdoing?
  • In addition to data-privacy laws, such as the recent enactment of the GDPR, what about local employment law regulations, including co-determination by local employee representations, and workers-counsel rights that can be legally asserted.
  • In this session, complex issues will be discussed with two seasoned practitioners in global investigations that will be interviewed by Richard Bistrong, himself subject to an internal investigation a decade ago. From both sides of the issue, this promises to be an engaging and interactive discussion on very real-world challenges.
