Cutting-Edge Issues in Global Anti-Corruption and Compliance

14 Nov 2013 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. PST

Morrison & Foerster, at the request of the Association of Corporate Counsel, has authored an updated White Paper (InfoPAK) to assist corporate counsel in making decisions about the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and global anti-corruption laws. We invite you to register for ACC’s webcast on November 14.

Our panel of leading anti-corruption compliance experts will discuss the legal and business challenges faced by companies with global operations. The presenters will also discuss risk assessment strategies. Our panelists have worked with companies with operations in some of the highest risk locations in the world, including Eastern Europe, China, South and Southeast Asia and Latin America.

During this webcast, our speakers will address:

  • The globalization of anti-corruption laws and how to identify particular risks in specific countries.
  • Challenges faced by global companies, including assessing and mitigating risk on a global basis and dealing with differences in local customs and business norms, as well as local law.
  • How to transform the mistakes of others into a positive for your compliance program. A discussion of recent investigations, settlements and enforcement actions and insights on leveraging these trends to strengthen your compliance program.
  • The risks in dealing with third parties, which include embezzlement, bribery and issues around internal controls. The FCPA prohibits corrupt payments to foreign officials for the purpose of obtaining or retaining business. Under the statute, both direct and indirect payments are unlawful. The use of intermediary third parties is the single most common source of corruption risk.
  • The regulators claim to reward the self-reporting of FCPA violations, but are the benefits illusory? What’s new here?

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