Program Fee:
Free for Members | $15 for Nonmembers

While geographically distant, Brazil, Japan and the United States are economically tight-knit countries with important, longstanding ties that bind them together. Nowhere are these connections more readily apparent than in the corporate and antitrust space.  The panel will provide an overview of how companies from the three jurisdictions deal with antitrust regulators in one of the other countries. The panelists will also discuss the role of New York law in corporate transactions involving the three countries. Finally, the panel will also discuss potential opportunities for investors in Brazil, Japan and the U.S. and how to navigate risks and other strategic considerations.
