The Future of Global Anticorruption Enforcement and What You Need to Know Now to Avoid Being Targeted
In recent months, we have seen more anticorruption investigations focused on global companies than ever before. We have seen the longest prison sentence imposed in FCPA history; the largest individual monetary forfeiture ever imposed; and more criminal penalties imposed than ever in the history of the FCPA. These trends are staggering, and we believe that the number of enforcement actions and penalties will continue to rise. Our program will address these trends and provide practical, defined steps that your companies can take to be aware of pitfalls and avoid anti-corruption enforcement actions.
Specific topics covered will include:
- An overview of key global anti-corruption laws including the broad implications of the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, Understanding the new United Kingdom Bribery Act, and how to Navigate The People’s Republic of China Criminal Law and Anti-Unfair Competition Law,
- An update on the trend toward “accidental liability,” including the Second Circuit’s January 2012 decision in United States v. Bourke,
- It Could Happen to You! Risk factor awareness including potential external and internal liabilities, third party and common risks of which you need to be aware,
- 2011-12 anti-corruption enforcement main events reviewed including landmark penalties and enforcement activity,
- Focus on enforcement in China; what the DOJ and SEC are focusing on and who is being targeted including a new FCPA task force presence in San Francisco and what this means for Silicon Valley companies, and
- 2011 enforcement case studies, trends and implications for 2012.
