Teleconference: "FCPA and the UK Bribery Act Implications for International Higher Education, Health Services, and Research Projects"
American higher education and academic medicine are increasingly involved in international projects and collaborations. These projects and collaborations almost invariably require dealing with foreign governmental entities and government-owned hospitals, clinics or universities, and these interactions may pose issues in unexpected ways under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”) and the UK Bribery Act. How do FCPA and UK Bribery Act risks arise in these projects and relationships and how can they be avoided? Please join Ropes & Gray partners Mark Barnes, Colleen Conry, and Michael Lampert as they discuss how American academic medical centers, universities and research centers can navigate their international collaborations to avoid FCPA and UK Bribery Act issues.
