Speaking Engagement

The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) is at the top of most companies’ key risk areas. The DOJ and SEC remain focused on investigating violations and enforcement of the law. As more countries and international organizations ramp up their anti-corruption enforcement the need for effective anti-corruption programs grows. This program, taught by a faculty of leading practitioners, in-house counsel and government officials, will give you the knowledge and tools you need to spot the issues early, develop workable risk management processes, plan and manage internal investigations, and implement effective compliance programs.

WilmerHale Partner Kim Parker is co-chairing the event and will lead multiple sessions, including the event's opening remarks and the following panel discussions: 

  • Anti-Corruption Issues Facing Financial Institutions, Hedge Funds and Private Equity
  • Anti-Corruption Issues When Doing Business in Latin America
  • Difficult Issues in Emerging Markets
  • Taking Your Compliance Program to the Next Level
  • Crisis Management Hypothetical: How to Handle a Real World FCPA Problem
