Morrison & Foerster LLP and Kroll Advisory Solutions cordially invite you to attend a seminar on: U.S. Government Regulation of Israeli High Tech Companies – How to avoid problems and deal with them if they arise.

Israeli High Tech companies don't have to have operations in the United States to be subject to U. S. regulation. This seminar will focus on:

  • Bribery, kickbacks, anti-competitive behavior and “pay-to-play” schemes involving governments. You don't need to be doing business in the United States to be subject to the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) or in the UK to be subject to the UK Bribery Act.
  • Contracting with government entities – Maintaining internal compliance and defending against claims under the False Claims Act and other statutory, regulatory, and contractual requirements by the Department of Justice, Inspectors General, and other enforcement officials.
  • Conducting internal investigations - When the SEC or disgruntled shareholders, employees or other whistleblowers allege that the Board has not fulfilled its duties or that criminal conduct has been permitted, internal investigations by Special Board Committees are an important response.
  • Performing and being prepared for due diligence. Both publicly traded and private Israeli High Tech companies considering a public offering or an M&A transaction must be able to demonstrate an awareness of U. S. government regulation and what they have done to make sure their books and records demonstrate that the right steps have been taken to see that they are complied with.
