The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA)
July 31 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$595
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.
Upon completion of this session the participant should:
- Develop a foundational understanding of the FCPA and other anti-corruption regulations of note;
- Gain perspectives into how the US Government has recently enforced the FCPA;
- Learn the key elements of a FCPA compliance program;
- Understand the importance of third party reputational due diligence and how it varies from sanctions screening and basic open-source searches;
- Comprehend the value that anti-corruption audits bring to organizations committed to anti-corruption compliance;
- Learn how corruption due diligence is different than other acquisition due diligence workstreams; and
- Gain practical insight into strategies for internal investigations and for remediating compliance issues.
