Trends and Developments on FCPA Enforcement: Hot Buttons to Consider
Recording Available: Thursday, May 28, 2020
To deter the increasing number of bribery and corruption offenses among US entities, intensified Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) enforcement actions continue to be a focus area this year. Specifically, the FCPA is requiring companies to retain their company’s record “in reasonable detail, [and to] accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of [assets]” to conform with the FCPA’s books and records requirements. Failure to comply could lead to legal lawsuits and hefty fines.
Therefore, it is of utmost importance for companies and practitioners to be in the know of the latest trends and developments emerging in this field of law.
In this LIVE Webcast, a seasoned panel of thought leaders and professionals brought together by The Knowledge Group will provide an in-depth analysis of the FCPA enforcement trends and developments. Speakers will also provide the best compliance practices to ensure compliance and abate potential exposure to legal risks.
Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:
- Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) Trends and Developments
- Notable Court Decisions
- Challenges and Considerations
- Best Compliance Tips and Strategies
