DOJ Guidance for Corporate Compliance Programs: Questions Counsel Should Expect in a Government Investigation
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE webinar will provide a detailed analysis of the “Evaluation of Corporate Compliance Programs” report (the Report) published in 2017 by the DOJ as well as other more recent DOJ policy changes, such as the FCPA Corporate Enforcement Policy (the FCPA Policy), which was added to the US Attorney’s Manual in November, 2017. The panel will prepare corporate counsel to design and implement a compliance program that will address recent DOJ enforcement priorities and protect its officers and directors from risks and liabilities, including prosecution, in the event of a government investigation.
- DOJ investigations generally—previous areas of focus
- Analysis of the Report and the FCPA Policy
- Designing a robust compliance program in light of DOJ enforcement priorities
- Individual accountability
- Corporate culture
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- What is the significance of the Report and the FCPA Policy relative to previous guidance?
- What do these DOJ materials reveal about DOJ’s investigation priorities going forward?
- How should compliance programs be designed to reflect an acceptable compliance culture?
- What compliance actions can be taken to protect officers and directors from personal liability?
