Mary Mulligan joined the faculty of the Practising Law Institute (PLI) course Doing Business in and with Emerging Markets 2016, held on July 7 at PLI's offices in New York. The course provided a comprehensive overview of the most pressing legal issues involved in international deal making in and with emerging markets. 

Specifically, the course addressed:

  • Investing in emerging markets in challenging times and latest developments
  • In-bound investments:  dealing with emerging markets clients in the U.S., facilitating investment, including negotiating with the emerging market investor, dealing with the most common impediments, and clearing regulatory hurdles
  • Anti-corruption: recent developments in the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act enforcements involving emerging markets 
  • Adhering to Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) regulations as well as equivalent legislation in emerging markets, such as China’s commercial antibribery law
  • Restructuring issues to consider when doing business with emerging markets
  • The General Counsel’s perspective on emerging markets: what keeps them up at night?

Ms. Mulligan's panel, entitled "Anti-Corruption Issues in Emerging Markets," was moderated by Alex Yong Hao of Jun He Law Offices. Her fellow panelists included Adam Li of Jun He Law Offices, Steven S. Michaels, an Associate General Counsel for Investigations at IBM, and Amadeu Ribeiro of Mattos Filho, Veiga Filho, Marrey Jr e Quiroga Advogados.  Ms. Mulligan is the primary author of "Navigating the FCPA in Emerging Markets," which was included in the PLI Course Handbook for the program.

The course took place at PLI's offices, located at 1177 Ave of the Americas in New York City, from 9:00 AM to 4:45 PM on Thursday, July 7, and is also available by webcast.
