    Comparing How Internal Investigations Are Conducted In The US Vs. In Asia

    Co-hosts Art Dicker and Boon Kim Fam are joined by Henry Van Dyck and George Martin, partners and co-chairs of the FCPA practice at Faegre Drinker.

    Henry was most recently a federal prosecutor at the U.S. Department of Justice working on FCPA and other global government investigations, while George has been a partner at Faegre and co-chair of the China practice covering FCPA and other matters there.

    Together we cover some of the most important and relevant topics, including how to continue conducting effective cross border investigations in view of ever evolving data privacy laws in China, and understanding to what extent the DOJ may or may not be amenable to potential limitations in terms of discovery. We also discussed what the latest Monaco memo means for executives and whether a "carrot" approach might be the way forward in assessing the effectiveness of a corporate compliance program.

    Law and Tech - Changing the World One Step at a Time

    Law and Tech - Changing the World One Step at a Time

    From a "surgeon saving lives" (external counsel) to a "family doctor who knows everything there needs to know about each member of the family" (in-house lawyer), Di Yao, Head of Legal for Google Shanghai speaks to the China Business Law Podcast about his journey from an external counsel to an in-house lawyer.

    In this episode, Di talks about what prompted him to move from a law firm to an in-house role, how he adds value to a technology company and also what technology companies should be thinking about in terms of their strategy taking into account the evolving regulatory requirements.

    Many would say when one transitions from a law firm to an in-house role, it might be for work-life balance reasons. Not Di though - he made the switch because he wanted to change the world. And he did, by joining Google in China and becoming a gatekeeper with a difference, providing pragmatic advice and risk assessment in a fast paced technology industry. Di implored audiences to think about what makes a business successful in China and weave this into the strategy, whether or not this relates to intellectual property, data security as well as privacy. He also advocates taking a step back and truly understand the intention of legislature in developing a robust business strategy. In relation to intellectual property, Di also explained that it is no longer enough to think that a product offering delivered a couple of years ago will continue to be relevant, as continuous innovation and creativity are key drivers driving the domestic market and we all have to catch up. China also recognizes the importance of intellectual property protection, so proactive protection, instead of a defensive IP litigation strategy would be a more sustainable approach. “

    Breaking the Bias - One Bias at a Time

    Breaking the Bias - One Bias at a Time

    Happy International Women’s Day! The theme for this year’s International Women’s Day is #Break The Bias. In this episode, guest host Kim speaks to Orianne Dutka, a former attorney who worked in private practice (FCPA investigations), government (education) and not for profit specializing in disability rights before finding her calling in creative writing, and is currently working on a novel as well as a screenplay!

    An accomplished violinist as well as an ultra-marathon runner, Orianne shared with CBLP her life changing experience in Beijing that enabled her to finally pursue what makes her heart sing. Orianne’s entire career path has been nothing short of extraordinary and she has been breaking biases along her journey. In addition, she also shared her personal story on how a supportive community in Huang Shan, Yellow Mountain in China broke the bias by supporting wheelchair users to climb the mountain; also how by constantly self-reflecting and not putting ourselves down we can stop perpetuating some of the biases that exist.

    We hope you enjoy this episode!
