FCPA Update Webinar

Monday, December 17, 2012 at 01:00 PM EST

Event Description:
The Foreign Corrupt Policies Act (FCPA), the world’s oldest anti-corruption law, just got a makeover. The long-anticipated FCPA Guidance was released last week in an undertaking that the Justice Department and SEC have called “unprecedented” in its attempt to clarify compliance and enforcement issues, causing all in-house and outside counsel who do business with or outside the United States to listen up.

The webinar will provide the necessary framework to what the Justice Department and the Securities and Exchange Commission have called the “the most comprehensive effort ever undertaken to explain enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act” and outline counsel will need to know to procure and protect business transactions outside the United States.

In-Depth View of New FCPA Guidance and a Study on Risk

The FCPA affects virtually every company that does business with the United States.  Record fines and penalties in the past 15 years have brought the FCPA to the forefront for any sort of cross-border transactions and litigation.  Once you have the outline of the guidance document, how will these affect you and your business?  How can you modify and reduce any risk?

This session will outline the entire FCPA guidance document and what commercial enterprises will need to know about updates and changes if any. 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.
