Presented by

F. Joseph Warin, Benno Schwarz, Nina Gross

About this talk

“FCPA enforcement is stronger than it's ever been – and getting stronger,” declared Assistant Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer on November 16, 2010. In 2010, U.S. regulators nearly doubled the number of enforcement actions over the record-breaking pace set in 2009 and obtained eight of the ten highest fines on record. So it is hard to disagree with Breuer that “we are in a new era of FCPA enforcement; and we are here to stay.” The hallmarks of this new era of aggressive global anti-corruption enforcement are characterized by escalating numbers of enforcement actions, industry-wide investigations, a focus on individual prosecutions, and increasing cooperation among international anti-corruption enforcement authorities. This webcast featuring a panel of practitioners with substantial experience with the FCPA and global anti-corruption laws will survey the recent trends and developments in global anti-corruption enforcement and discuss how companies can avoid the potential pitfalls and best protect themselves and their employees from wrongdoing and prosecution. Directors, senior executives, in-house counsel, and compliance personnel can benefit from these experts that deal daily with the legal and business challenges posed by the FCPA and other international anti-corruption laws. In particular, the webcast will address: •Recent DOJ and SEC FCPA enforcement activity and trends •The latest global anti-corruption enforcement efforts •The implementation and reach of the U.K. Bribery Act to U.S. companies •The SEC’s recent proposed rule implementing the Dodd-Frank whistleblower provisions •Collateral civil litigation following company disclosures of investigations of potential anti-corruption law violations or settlements of regulatory actions •Compliance best practices
