Course Materials

This CLE course 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.


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
    3. Successor liability from acquisitions
    4. Clamping down on demand side of foreign bribery
    5. Criminal trials
  2. SEC enforcement actions
    1. Corporate settlements
    2. Individual prosecutions
    3. Filing of unsettled cases
  3. U.K./SFO prosecutions


The panel will review these and other key questions:

  • What can be learned from recent actions brought by the DOJ?
  • How do the enforcement trends of the SEC differ from those of the DOJ?
  • What actions have the Serious Fraud Office taken to enforce the U.K. Bribery Act?

Following the speaker presentations, you'll have an opportunity to get answers to your specific questions during the interactive Q&A.
