The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA)

August 13 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm


Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) enforcement continues to be a significant United States Government civil and criminal priority. While the United States continues to lead international anti-corruption enforcement efforts, other countries, mutli-lateral development banks, and quasi-regulators are also ramping up their interest in enacting and enforcing anti-corruption regulations.

This course will provide an overview of the three provisions of the FCPA. The expert faculty will discuss the current international anti-corruption regulatory landscape, including trends in recently settled FCPA cases. The expert faculty will also discuss:

  • Designing and implementing compliance programs to prevent and detect inappropriate activities;
  • Integrating third party reputational due diligence;
  • The importance of proactive, anti-corruption audits to a robust anti-corruption compliance program;
  • The role specialized corruption due diligence plays in mitigating risks in mergers and acquisitions;
  • Corruption investigations; and
  • Remediating compliance issues.

  • Develop a foundational understanding of the FCPA and other anti-corruption regulations of note;
