Morrison & Foerster’s Chuck Duross, co-leader of the firm’s FCPA and Global Anti-Corruption Practice Group, was featured by the Washington Foreign Law Society on a panel to discuss anticorruption laws around the world.

Spurred by the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention and the United Nations Convention Against Corruption, and by increasingly vigorous anti-corruption enforcement in multiple jurisdictions, countries are taking a variety of approaches to addressing corruption in their national laws. These approaches include not only adopting new criminal bribery-related offenses, including offenses that criminalize corporate bribery and failure to prevent bribery, but also new authority to enter into deferred prosecution agreements and to pursue administrative remedies for corruption. At the same time, some countries are seeking to reduce the scope and severity of their current anti-corruption laws. This discussion by two distinguished Washington, D.C. attorneys — both former U.S. Department of Justice Deputy Chiefs — will explore the key trends and developments with regard to anti-corruption conventions and laws around the world, and identify factors likely to affect the continued adoption and enforcement of such laws.
