Enforcement under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) 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. 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 legal compliance. This PLI program will provide background and tools needed to spot the issues early, develop workable risk management processes and implement effective compliance programs.

WilmerHale Partner Roger Witten will be participating on a panel entitled, “The Year in Review and Enforcement Trends,” during which he will contribute to a discussion on new prosecutions by the DOJ and SEC, emerging trends, declination of prosecution of MS, and anti-corruption enforcement in the rest of the world, among other topics.
