The Department of Justice, SEC, FBI, and other federal agencies have devoted unprecedented resources to detecting and prosecuting violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). Violations are resulting in substantial penalties and prison sentences for those involved. Companies and their employees have been held liable even when they did not know about improper conduct by their agents and channel partners.

In this 90 Minute Briefing, Ross Garber, a partner with the Washington, D.C. and Hartford Connecticut offices of Shipman & Goodwin LLP, will provide practical guidance on how you can avoid FCPA problems.

Among the topics that will be covered are:

  • FCPA Red Flags
  • New incentives for whistleblowers under the Dodd-Frank law
  • Detection techniques employed by government agencies
  • Government focus on particular industries including medical device, pharmaceutical, military, and law enforcement products
  • Particular risks for business conducted in countries with state-owned enterprises, such as China
  • Compliance with new U.K. bribery law
  • Standards for an effective compliance program
  • Preventing individual liability for executives, compliance personnel, finance officers and salespeople

The 90 Minute Briefing will provide practical, useful guidance focused on preventing problems before they arise.
