American Conference Institute presents the 23rd FCPA National Conference
March 23-24, 2010 at the W New York
Vigorous enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act continues to be a priority for the US Department of Justice and the US Securities and Exchange Commission, across industries and around the globe.
The increase of FCPA enforcement makes prevention an even higher priority than it may have been in the past. The absence of preventative measure is almost certain to result in substantially increased penalties if an issue arises. This makes an effective anti-corruption compliance program essential for all companies. With record-setting sanctions involving well-known companies, global organizations have to reassess their own anti-corruption measures to prevent lapses that might lead to damaging and costly enforcement actions.
Paul Hastings partner Timothy Dickinson will moderate the following panel on Tuesday, March 23rd.
