The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act ("FCPA") continues to be one of the focal points of the Securities Exchange Commission's and the Department of Justice's enforcement program. Enforcement actions, civil and criminal, are continuing at pace and the cost of resolving FCPA actions is getting more onerous. At the same time, the U.K. Bribery Act and other foreign anti-corruption laws are gaining in prominence. Multinational companies increasingly face bribery risks in their international business activities. Such risks can, however, be detected and managed. The experienced faculty of private practitioners, regulators, and prosecutors will provide an in-depth analysis of the FCPA's current trends and implications. The faculty will discuss timely important information on the latest enforcement trends, international developments, compliance best practices, and risk assessment and mitigation.
The topics to be covered include:
•DOJ and SEC Guidance
•Wall Street and the FCPA
•Year in Review: Analysis of recent trials, settlements and lessons learned
•Judicial Review: A review of judicial opinions concerning the FCPA
•Conducting due diligence of foreign commercial intermediaries, agents, distributors and joint venture partners to minimize liability risks
•Trends in international cooperation among enforcement officials
•Overcoming cultural and legal challenges in rolling out a compliance culture
•Weighing the pros and cons of voluntary disclosure
•Conducting internal investigation and compliance reviews in challenging countries
