Nipping Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Problems in the Bud: Ensuring Robust Compliance in the Company You Have and Vetting the Companies You Acquire
No company wants to run afoul of the FCPA. In the current atmosphere of heightened enforcement, how can companies ensure that they are not swept up in an FCPA investigation? In part one of this panel, in-house corporate counsel and a Department of Justice official will discuss a series of real-world scenarios relating to FCPA compliance. Seasoned professionals will share practical tips about how to avoid FCPA problems before they ever reach a critical stage. How does a company evaluate FCPA risks? How can a company with far-flung international subsidiaries implement effective FCPA compliance programs? How can companies ensure that they will not inherit FCPA problems when they expand their business through acquisition? The first part of this panel will address these issues. The second part of the panel will discuss FCPA enforcement issues.
