Course Materials

This CLE course will provide guidance for counsel to companies doing business in China on complying with U.S. and Chinese anti-corruption laws and responding to governmental investigations. The panel will also examine the coordination of efforts between the governmental authorities.


U.S. companies continue to conduct business in and with China at an increasing pace. In a rapidly growing economy that is strongly cash-based and where the government maintains an active role, U.S. companies are at risk of employees crossing the line and violating Chinese anti-bribery law, as well as the FCPA.

China's new leadership is taking a strong stand to fight corruption and is particularly focusing on commercial bribery. One challenge facing businesses is that China's enforcement agencies are very local and not coordinated.

China’s anti-corruption efforts together with the U.S. government’s continually increasing FCPA enforcement initiatives alert U.S. companies to the need for rigorous controls to comply with Chinese and U.S. laws.

Listen as our authoritative panel examines U.S. and Chinese anti-corruption laws and enforcement and offers best practices for minimizing the risk of violations and responding to investigations. The panel will also discuss the coordination of enforcement efforts between the governmental authorities.
