AN INTRODUCTION TO THE FOREIGN CORRUPT PRACTICES ACT 


Date/Time:  February 29th, 2012, 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. 


Description:
For companies conducting business internationally, understanding and complying with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) has never been more important. FCPA enforcement has increased dramatically; in 2010, the DOJ assessed more than $1.2 billion in financial penalties against U.S. and foreign companies under the once little-enforced FCPA. Additionally, many executives have pleaded guilty to felony FCPA charges.  This CLE will provide an introduction to the FCPA’s major provisions and cover recent enforcement trends.  Join Mark Bartlett and Matt Cooper, as they help navigate the intricate and highly complex laws of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
Attendees at this interesting CLE will gain an understanding of:
1)     How to identify issues arising from the FCPA;
2)     How to avoid common pitfalls arising out of FCPA;
3)     Solutions and best practices where FCPA issues arise;
