US enforcement against (European) Financial firms: What to expect from the new US Administration?

Expert panel, 4 May 2017 in Geneva 

Based on recent data collected by the Global Investigation Review, more than half of the 100 highest financial penalties imposed on corporates since 1991 ($ 267 billion) were paid by banks or other financial services firms. In 18 cases, European banks were the targets, including UBS and Credit Suisse in 7 cases. All of these cases were substantially driven by US law enforcement agencies. These figures show the crucial importance of US law and its enforcement for global corporates, their managers and staff. This outreach of US criminal law is not limited to large foreign corporates as many Swiss banks experienced in the US client tax cases.

Can European banks expect any changes in US law enforcement from the new US administration? This will be the topic presented and discussed in a public expert panel including the following distinguished panelists

  • Keith Krakaur, Partner Skadden, Arps, Slate Meagher & Flom, London
  • Pierre Gentin Partner Cahill Gordon & Reindel, New York
  • Anne Wildhaber, Head Litigation & Investigations Switzerland, UBS Zurich

The panel will be moderated by Urs Zulauf, professor at the University of Geneva Faculty of Law, specialized in international financial regulatory law enforcement.

This panel is jointly organized by the Centre de droit bancaire et financier, the CAS Financial Regulation and the CAS Financial Regulation alumni association. It is free of charge but the participants are expected to register here.
