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 DOJ, SEC, and FCPA enforcement 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.
