VENUE:JW Marriott, 24, Vittal Mallya Rd.,KG Halli, Shanthala Nagar, Ashok Nagar, Bengaluru, Karnataka 560001.



India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world, but in terms of corruption it does not fare too well.

Internal investigations in the corporate world, along with varied legislations in place, have been playing a critical role in nipping the evil in the bud. Efforts too are on to establish an effective enforcement ecosystem outlining possible courses of action that may be required, pursuant to a fully informed decision.

Despite these efforts, we have still not been able to fully prevent such incidents of fraud, bribery, harassment, forgery, funds embezzlement and more.

Nishith Desai Associates in association with PwC India is pleased to invite you to a session titled the contours of conducting internal investigations on finding possible solutions to pre-empt such incidents in India.
