As Latin America pivots away from populism in the face of weak commodity prices, slower economic growth and constrained budgets, the potential convergence of interests and enhanced cooperation between the United States and the region has been upended by the election of Donald Trump. What will be the impact of the new administration on U.S.-Mexico bilateral relations, including potential renegotiations of NAFTA? As important, what will be the disparate impacts of a Trump administration on other key economies in the region?

The recent political shifts across the Americas have been connected, in part, to the escalating importance of corruption concerns globally – Lava Jato (Brazil), the Panama Papers, FIFA and Unaoil –with a surge of investigative activity implicating Latin America in particular. Heightened and increasingly decentralized enforcement activity, stronger anti-corruption legal frameworks enacted across the region, cross-border enforcement by regulators and a new generation of investigative journalists are altering the compliance landscape. The old ways of doing business in Latin America are being subjected to scrutiny and accountability. Is this the new normal? What’s next for Latin America in terms of regulatory enforcement?

Please join a select group of leading practitioners from the legal, compliance, political risk and investigations sectors to discuss these and other topics implicating Latin America in 2017.
