There are multiple benefits that joint ventures have to offer partner firms. Access to new markets, distribution networks, technology/intellectual property, and finance are some of them. But organizations could face dire consequences, if joint ventures are not ethically and legally directed. One of the best examples takes us back to 2001 when two pharmaceutical companies had to shell out $875 million for violations of federal fraud and abuse laws. As joint ventures become a common trend today, and as organizations explore newer markets, they need to take measures to prevent any joint venture investment losses due to compliance failures.

In this forum, compliance, risk, and ethics experts Jeffrey M. Kaplan - Partner at Kaplan & Walker LLP, and Keri Dawson - Vice President of Advisory Services at MetricStream will talk in depth about compliance risks in joint ventures and effective practices that organizations can implement.  Other pertinent points revolve around how organizations can:

  • Structure joint venture agreements to promote compliance
  • Assess compliance risks in joint ventures through effective processes
  • Mitigate risks through compliance training, monitoring, auditing and providing expertise
  • Establish a sustainable compliance program in joint ventures by leveraging technology
