Morrison & Foerster and Markkula Center for Applied Ethics Seminar Series.
Why is the SEC’s San Francisco office home to a unit devoted to Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) enforcement? Tracy Davis, the unit’s head, has explained: “The fact that we have a significant presence of companies in Silicon Valley who do business internationally, specifically in Asia, makes us well-suited for addressing these kinds of issues.”
Silicon Valley companies who do business in Asia—especially China—are in the government’s spotlight. And the government has backed up its tough talk with action. Since 2002, business activities in China have given rise to nearly 40 FCPA enforcement actions, more than almost any other country.
Please join us for a discussion of the FCPA challenges faced by Silicon Valley companies doing business in China, why the government scrutinizes business practices there, and practical compliance solutions.
