This has been another landmark year for enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). While the number of enforcement actions may have declined recently, regulators insist that FCPA enforcement remains a high priority, with the Department of Justice disclosing that there are more than 100 companies currently under investigation.

Our panelists will discuss the legal, ethical, and business challenges faced by companies with global operations and provide practical advice for conducting a global risk assessment and implementing effective anti-corruption programs. The discussion will highlight the issues surrounding the detection, investigation, remediation, penalties and reputational damage from an FCPA violation. In this presentation, our speakers will address:

  • The recent trends in FCPA enforcement, including industry sweeps.
  • The regulators' continued focus on bringing cases against individuals.
  • The DOJ and SEC's promised guidance on the FCPA and the potential for clearer rules of the road.
  • The risks posed by mergers and acquisitions and investments.
  • The debate on whether self-reporting of FCPA violations is beneficial.
  • The need to prepare for whistleblower allegations.
  • The testing of the UK Bribery Act and how the law will be enforced.
  • The meaning of "adequate procedures" and the implementation of a successful compliance program.
  • Increasing frequency of FCPA matters in Latin America.

This program is intended to help companies, compliance officers, and in-house counsel understand enforcement trends. Hear the latest developments on how to protect your company.
