[September 9th Webinar] Investigation of recent corporate scandals and third-party committees-Has the “third-party committee” finished its role? ~

Nov. 2022, 9

[Online seminar co-sponsored by Anderson Mori & Tomotsune Law Office / FRONTEO]

In 2010, the Japan Federation of Bar Associations (JFBA) published the Guidelines for Third-Party Committees in Corporate Scandals, and since then, the practice of establishing third-party committees to investigate large-scale corporate scandals has become established. In many cases, other types of investigative committees, such as "special investigative committees," are set up in the surveys, and the number of cases in which third-party committees are set up seems to be on the decline.In addition, regarding the third-party committee, although the content of its activities has become a black box, the claims are high, it is doubtful whether the investigative committee is truly independent from the management team, and the scope of the investigation is too narrow to clarify the actual situation. It is also pointed out that there is a problem that it is not.

In light of this situation, this webinar will explain the history and current status of third-party committees, as well as the stances of the authorities, stock exchanges, and auditing firms on third-party committees. I look forward to practice.
