Event Overview

The year is 2020, when regulatory compliance has more impacts on South Korean corporate operations than ever. As the country embraces its international footprint and harnesses its fair-trade practices, corporate sanctions, export control regimes, and antitrust laws weigh in as top concerns for corporate counsel. More businesses are brought under regulatory scrutiny with more record fines being imposed. Besides, the escalated trade tensions, together with global policy uncertainties pose new compliance matters to Korean corporates in a full array of colours. 

Corporate counsel and compliance leaders no longer just keep the house in order but provide a proactive engagement to steer more business opportunities for the corporate, while effectively guarding the company against unnecessary risks. 

ALB Virtual Korea Corporate Compliance Forum 2020 provides a platform for senior legal and compliance experts to share their strategies on how to better manage the ever-increasing compliance obligations in both South Korea and abroad. Participants will also get practical advice on how to effectively deal with the risks associated with expanding into markets where prevailing local practices are at odds with international norms.

The session will be dominantly in English. 

이벤트 개요

규제 준수가 한국 기업 운영에 그 어느 때보 다 더 많은 영향을 미치는 2020 년입니다. 국가가 국제적 발자국을 수용하고 공정 거래 관행을 활용함에 따라 기업 제재, 수출 통제 체제 및 독점 금지법은 기업 변호사의 최우선 관심사입니다. 더 많은 사업체가 더 많은 벌금을 부과하면서 규제 조사를받습니다. 게다가, 세계 정책 불확실성과 함께 증가 된 무역 긴장은 한국 기업들에게 다양한 색상으로 새로운 규정 준수 문제를 제기합니다.

 

기업 상담 및 규정 준수 리더는 더 이상 집을 정돈 할뿐 아니라 회사의 더 많은 비즈니스 기회를 이끌어 내기 위해 적극적으로 참여하면서 불필요한 위험으로부터 회사를 효과적으로 보호합니다.

Long-arm Enforcement: Are your Regional Offices and HQ protected Against Violations from Operations in Korea? 

As Korea strengthens its business transparency, Korean corporations and their executives and employees are increasingly under higher scrutiny by regulators for violations of laws and regulations. However, what about liability of managers of foreign corporations operating in Korea, including those in the regional offices or in global HQ, who participate in decisions that result in violations of Korean laws and regulations? What if the foreign manager knew of a potential wrongful conduct by the local company but did not take any affirmative action to prevent it-- Can the foreign manager be held responsible for being complicit?

In this session, Yulchon’s experts in investigations and compliance will speak on the following informative issues: 

  • Latest legal developments and enforcement of Korean laws against foreign persons  
  • Principles to identify when an overseas manager may be held accountable for local offense
  • Investigations and compliance procedures to protect an international company’s interest
  • Practices to safeguard companies and overseas management from extra-territorial enforcement actions by Korean authority

  • YongSang Kim, Foreign Attorney, Co-Head of International Dispute Resolutions Team, Yulchon LLC

  • From policing to coaching – helping local units make the right decisions
