The Knowledge Group Webcast “Emerging Issues: FCPA Voluntary Disclosure – A 2015 Perspective”
The U.S. Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission frequently espouse the benefits of Voluntary Disclosure of FCPA Violations. Yet, determining whether and when to voluntarily disclose a potential Foreign Corrupt Practices Act violation is a difficult decisions for a company and their counsel. Volunteering disclosure runs the risk of disclosing potentially illegal conduct while non-disclosure in effect guarantees a government investigation and makes it highly likely the company will be required to enter into a settlement and pay a fine or other monetary remedy to the government.
This valuable two hour CLE webinar, arranged by The Knowledge Group, will provide the audience with insight into the approaches taken by the DOJ and SEC to voluntary disclosures of potential FCPA violations, the issues that companies and their counsel must consider prior to voluntarily disclose, and strategies that companies can develop to reduce risk and to minimize penalties.
