Discussing best practices for internal compliance
On October 29, IE Law School welcomed the LatAm Alliance and other guests for the Ibero-American Conference on Compliance of Eversheds Sutherland. The Alliance, an innovative platform made up of 22 law firms from 17 countries, is an academic partner of the school with a commitment to upholding the highest standards in its legal services.
At the event’s “Best Practices for Developing Internal Investigations” roundtable, panelists came together to look at the importance of compliance in today’s world. Francisco Hernández-Castillo, Global General Counsel, and Javier Izquierdo, Responsible for Administration at ASG Homes, were joined by José Agustín Preciado from Attorneys-at-Law Fábrega Molino, and Florencia Castagnola, partner at Guyer & Regules.
Attendees, largely comprising compliance lawyers and internal compliance investigators, received a highly practical vision of compliance. Exploring topics such as the future of compliance and current trends in Ibero-America, speakers provided valuable real-world insights in a lively roundtable discussion.
Francisco Hernández-Castillo kicked off the discussion with the question “Why are internal investigations carried out?”. In his presentation, Hernández-Castillo explained that businesses in the US and EU—already the subject of increasing scrutiny—are now being joined under the spotlight by their counterparts in Latin America, Asia and the Middle East.
