Why You Should Attend
The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”) is at the top of most companies’ key risk areas. The DOJ and SEC remain focused on investigating violations and enforcement of the law. Recent FCPA settlements demonstrate that no industry is immune from scrutiny and the trend towards higher penalties involving multiple regulators has continued.  As more countries and international organizations ramp up their anti-corruption enforcement the need for effective anti-corruption programs grows. This program, taught by a faculty of leading practitioners, in-house counsel, and government officials, will give you the knowledge and tools you need to spot the issues early, develop workable risk management processes, plan and manage internal investigations, and implement effective compliance programs. This program is designed for both in-house and outside counsel interested in gaining a practical, in-depth understanding of the FCPA, as well as for accounting and financial advisors.

What You Will Learn  

  • Enforcement trends: Recent cases, DOJ Pilot Program, voluntary disclosure, targeted industries, and international anti-corruption developments
  • Enforcement board and management responsibilities for anti-corruption programs and investigations
  • Practical tips and best practices for in-house counsel in dealing with critical FCPA issues
  • How to manage risk in various third-party relationships, corporate acquisitions, and joint venture relationships
  • How to get the most from your anti-corruption compliance program and take it to the next level
  • Ethical issues confronting outside and in-house counsel including the handling of whistleblower complaints

Special Features 

  • Latest government views and comments
  • Hypothetical scenarios based on real-world challenges
  • Interactive polling
  • Earn one hour of Ethics credit

Why You Should Attend
The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”) is at the top of most companies’ key risk areas. The DOJ and SEC remain focused on investigating violations and enforcement of the law. Recent FCPA settlements demonstrate that no industry is immune from scrutiny and the trend towards higher penalties involving multiple regulators has continued.  As more countries and international organizations ramp up their anti-corruption enforcement the need for effective anti-corruption programs grows. This program, taught by a faculty of leading practitioners, in-house counsel, and government officials, will give you the knowledge and tools you need to spot the issues early, develop workable risk management processes, plan and manage internal investigations, and implement effective compliance programs. This program is designed for both in-house and outside counsel interested in gaining a practical, in-depth understanding of the FCPA, as well as for accounting and financial advisors.

This program is designed for both in-house and outside counsel interested in gaining a practical, in-depth understanding of the FCPA, as well as for accounting and financial advisors.

Why You Should Attend
The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”) is at the top of most companies’ key risk areas. The DOJ and SEC remain focused on investigating violations and enforcement of the law. Recent FCPA settlements demonstrate that no industry is immune from scrutiny and the trend towards higher penalties involving multiple regulators has continued.  As more countries and international organizations ramp up their anti-corruption enforcement the need for effective anti-corruption programs grows. This program, taught by a faculty of leading practitioners, in-house counsel, and government officials, will give you the knowledge and tools you need to spot the issues early, develop workable risk management processes, plan and manage internal investigations, and implement effective compliance programs. This program is designed for both in-house and outside counsel interested in gaining a practical, in-depth understanding of the FCPA, as well as for accounting and financial advisors.

  • Enforcement trends: Recent cases, DOJ Pilot Program, voluntary disclosure, targeted industries, and international anti-corruption developments
