This CLE course will provide guidance to counsel for companies doing business outside the U.S. to ensure effective compliance with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the UK Bribery Act.


U.S. companies doing business in the UK must take anti-corruption policies and compliance programs seriously. The FCPA Guidance stated “Assessment of risk is fundamental to developing a strong compliance program, and is another factor DOJ and SEC evaluate when assessing a company’s compliance program.”

Companies should perform a risk assessment to identify gaps and measure the risks of noncompliance. Assessment results guide counsel in mitigating risk and developing a plan to ensure compliance with the FCPA and UK Bribery Act.

With U.S. and UK government scrutiny on anti-corruption compliance, U.S. companies should take steps now to identify and address vulnerabilities with respect to both countries’ laws.

Listen as our authoritative panel reviews the essential components of an effective risk assessment, identifies troublesome FCPA and UK Bribery Act compliance issues, and offers strategies for overcoming risk assessment challenges and executing an effective and cost-efficient risk assessment.
