Practising Law Institute: The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and International Anti-Corruption Developments 2014
New York, New York
The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) is at the top of most companies’ key risk areas. Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) resources devoted to investigation and enforcing the law remain at an all-time high. 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. Beyond the FCPA, an increasing number of countries, as well as international organizations, are ramping up anti-corruption enforcement and adding to the complexity of global investigations and legal compliance. This program, taught by a faculty of leading practitioners, in-house experts and DOJ/SEC officials, will give you the background and tools you need to spot the issues early, develop workable risk management processes and implement effective compliance programs.
WilmerHale Partner Kimberly Parker will participate in a panel entitled, “Hypothetical – Crisis Management,” where she will contribute to a discussion on the impact of a government subpoena, what happens during the first 48 hours of the investigation, whether to hire consultants or handle in-house, and how to protect the business and manage all the constituencies. Disclosure issues and processing emerging information as the investigation progresses will also be addressed.
