Though widely perceived to be in crisis, Brazil is in fact experiencing an historic pivot in laws, enforcement procedures, and cultural norms regarding corruption.
The recent wave of resignations and prosecutions is evidence of new anti-corruption initiatives taking effect.
This webinar brings together several experts on Brazil’s anti-corruption reforms to tell a more sophisticated story of these new enforcement initiatives, the forces that drove their implementation, and their effect in exposing and prosecuting systemic corruption.
- Lucinda Low, Partner at Steptoe & Johnson and President of the American Society of International Law

- Carlos Ayres, Partner at Trench, Rossi e Watanabe Advogados
