Practising Law Institute webcast: "The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act 2009: Coping with Heightened Enforcement Risks"
Timothy Dickinson, Partner in Paul Hastings Litigation department, is a featured panelist in PLI's webcast. Topics to be covered in the 8:30-10:30 am ET session are:
In recent years, the FCPA has become one of the most important laws for companies and their counsel, as virtually every company now conducts at least some aspect of their business oversees. The records for FCPA enforcement actions and settlements set in 2007 continued in 2008 along with an increasing number of foreign corruption investigations, civil actions collateral to FCPA investigations, and the introduction of legislation providing for a private right of action under the FCPA. This trend will no doubt continue in 2009.
Understanding and managing your risks is imperative in todays global market environment.
This program is designed by PLI for both in-house and outside counsel interested in gaining a practical, in-depth understanding of the FCPA, as well as the legal and ethical responsibilities of those companies subject to the Act and their legal, accounting and financial advisors.
