On June 10, 2020, Ropes & Gray’s anti-corruption and international risk and data privacy attorneys hosted the fourth event in their virtual “Cafecito con Ropes & Gray” series of casual, Chatham House Rule virtual roundtable discussions aiming to address anti-bribery and anti-corruption concerns for businesses operating in Latin America during the COVID-19 pandemic launched by María González Calvet and Nick Berg.  

In this latest discussion, partner Ed McNicholas examined data privacy concerns for Latin American businesses. Attendees included firm clients, general counsel, and compliance officers operating in Latin America and around the world.  

The first session on April 15 examined historical corruption cases during prior humanitarian crises. The second session on April 30 examined compliance risks that the crisis has brought on companies operating in Latin America. The third session on May 28 examined sanctions and export considerations for suppliers of COVID-19 relief items to Latin American jurisdictions, and featured insights from partner Ama Adams.
