As the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”) turns 35 years old, the law has matured into a daily concern for corporate legal and compliance professionals alike as companies and individuals face aggressive enforcement by U.S. prosecutors and regulators for conduct that often occurs far from the corporate headquarters. This webcast will highlight the several converging trends encouraging companies to reevaluate and update their compliance programs to ensure they meet the emerging–and more nuanced–best practices informed by the latest FCPA enforcement actions and trials and recent guidance provided for compliance with the U.K. Bribery Act (“UKBA”).
Featuring an experienced panel of anti-corruption compliance practitioners, this webcast will cover the key trends shaping FCPA and UKBA enforcement and provide practical insights for companies seeking to assess their compliance risks and refresh their compliance program in a cost-efficient manner. Beyond this, the webcast will address compliance best practices related to risk assessment strategies, dealings with third parties, due diligence in M&A transactions, and the role of internal audit in internal investigations.
