Please join a panel of distinguished Brazilian lawyers to discuss legal efforts to counter this wave of corruption, including important reforms in debarment, bid protests, criminal law and compliance.
- Brazil’s public procurement system: what vulnerabilities led to the current corruption scandals
- Institutional arrangements for fighting corruption in Brazil: courts, government agencies and applicable laws
- Self-cleaning/Remediation in Brazil: a comparative approach with EU and U.S. compliance law and practice
