PLI's The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and International Anti-Corruption Developments 2012
Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) enforcement actions continue to grab attention, from the sky high penalties that companies now pay, to the increased prosecution of individuals. FCPA enforcement continues as a critical priority for both the DOJ and the SEC. Recent FCPA enforcement actions and disclosures demonstrate that no industry is immune from FCPA scrutiny, and FCPA sweep investigations across industry sectors are becoming more common and challenging. And beyond the FCPA, the anticorruption laws of other countries, including China and the UK, add to the complexity of legal compliance. Companies everywhere must make anticorruption compliance and the creation of effective anticorruption programs a top priority. This program, taught by a faculty of leading practitioners and government regulators, will give you the background and tools you need to spot the issues early, develop workable risk management processes and implement effective compliance programs.
Paul Hastings partner Timothy Dickinson is a featured panelist on Day One, May 3, to discuss "Difficult and Unresolved Questions Under the FCPA" at 1:15 pm Eastern. Some topics include:
• Who is a foreign official?• Jurisdictional limits on the FCPAs reach?• What does knowledge really mean?• What exactly is an "instrumentality"; Is it different from a public enterprise• How is disgorgement calculated?• When to disclose FCPA violations? - Are there benefits?
