Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A


Conducted on Wednesday, May 16, 2012
Recorded event now available


This CLE webinar will provide guidance to counsel for companies doing business outside the U.S. on FCPA enforcement activity, review lessons that can be gleaned from DOJ and SEC enforcement actions, and discuss fraud enforcement in the U.K.

Description

The U.S. Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission continue to focus on Foreign Corrupt Practices Act compliance. Companies doing business outside the U.S. can learn from recent enforcement actions by both the DOJ and SEC.

Among the current enforcement trends, both the DOJ and SEC are continuing to focus on prosecution of individuals. Defendants in several cases have taken the government to trial with mixed results.

Governments across the globe are taking on the fight against corruption. Outside the U.S., the U.K.’s Bribery Act went into full force in 2011, and the British government wasted no time prosecuting its first case under the Act. Counsel must prepare for both U.S. and global enforcement against corruption.

Listen as our authoritative panel examines recent enforcement actions by the DOJ and SEC and enforcement activity outside the U.S. The panel will review the lessons that can be learned from recent enforcement activity.

  1. DOJ enforcement actions
    1. Corporate settlements
    2. Individual prosecutions

    5. Criminal trials
